Bobble Yarn

I went to All the Fun of the Fair (yarn shop in central London) recently and bought a couple of balls of this very soft bobble yarn.
I am using it to make a knitted bag (the fabric was to holey looking when crocheted to make a bag) which I will attach a selection of knitted and crocheted flowers.
I have been using large needles and doing a simple stocking stitch. Its an interesting yarn to use you knit and purl between the bobbles.

The fabric looks great on both sides and is so soft.

I will line the bag and post when I finish (hopefully soon)


  1. I made a scarf with a yarn very similar to this one. Can't wait to see how does you bag look like!

  2. This is an interesting posting for me. Thanks for sharing, I like it. Landscaping Ideas
