Bobbles are very hard on the hands. Well, at least mine. I finished the first piece of the Dolly Bag which has bobbles as a finished upper edge. It took me some time to figure out the directions, but the result is worth it. I’m sure there is a better way to complete the bobble, but I’m doing what works. To give my hands a break I picked up some very soft acrylic to make a scarf with, I’m about 1/3 of the way done. Then it will be back to bobbles.
