Knitting bobbles

OK, I thought that this was going to be easy. My friend Jimmie started to make the  Nano cover by Debbie Bliss for his daughter & had problems. I thought, 'Oh plesase, somethning so small can't be that hard.' Wrong.

What is it about bobbles? Why are they so hard? Or what am i/we missing?

Any tips will be very welcome. I've googled & got a few sites but they don't seem to match Debbies instructions.

Picot-edge face mitt

Behold my latest creation: The Picot-edge Face Mitt!

check out what I made!

This was knitted in the round on #4 DPNs using Millefili Fine, the first "pricey" yarn I've ever bought, a souvenir of my June excursion to New York and my first visit to Knit New York, a great knit café with an awesome staff.

The judgement seat...

...is also a hot seat, at least in this kind of weather. Into the 90s again today, with high humidity and little breeze. Today was the day I promised to judge knit and crochet pieces for the county fair, so off to the fairgrounds at 9 am. Mary, the supervisor, was waiting for me and knew who I was even though we'd never met in person before. Easy, I was the only male judge in her division, Home Economics.

We started with the crochet work, and the only hard judgement call I had was to rank six crocheted afghans. Managed that and wrote suggestions to all the creators. Plowed ahead through several smaller categories, then had to pick best in show for crochet. It went to the best afghan, which was really a nice piece of work.

Scarf #1 down...

Hey everyone, I am thrilled to announce that I just finished my very first sacrf!  ...I think it turned out pretty well for having basically taught myself. 

Needles to say, I have begun yet another scarf (I'll do one more before branching out into something more complicated, any suggestions?).  I found that I didn't know what to do with my hands for the three days between projects.  I am truly obssesed! 

A word of thanks to everyone for thier kind advice, I am finding this site to be a priceless resource!  

...Which brings me to my next question....

Glad to be here, Men!

Good evening, men.  I've been knitting for some time, but have just recently discovered the joys of knitting socks!

Of course, I expect to be motivated to push myself into other areas of knitting once I hear and see what you all are doing!

When's the next chat, by the way?

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to the poll about a scheduled chat session.   55 people voted . . double what I had expected . . and 51% indicated that they either want a scheduled chat or often check the chatroom when they log on to MWK.

So, the first scheduled GENERAL CHAT will be scheduled for this Thursday, August 3rd, 10PM  EASTERN- until whenever.  This way, hopefully, you will know that if you log into the chatroom then, someone should be here to chat with you.  Chat about whatever you like.  It will just be a way for everyone to meet, especially the new members.

New to Knitting

Hello everyone! Just a little bit more about myself: I am completely new to knitting - I just started teaching myself today, haha. I have been crocheting since I was about 8 years old, but as I grew older I began to form an interest in knitting as well. So I began researching it and here I am. I guess I'm off to a decent start. I guess having some history in crocheting helped out a little.

I am exicted to be a part of this new community! I was happy to have stumbled across this website. I look forward to getting to know many of you.

my weekend job

Hi everybody,

Here is what I did over the weekend.

I painted on a skein of yarn, a combination of a silk lace, merino wool and mohair. Could not wait to knit a sample. Look for yourself.
