I've heard stories about these nupps, I've read a lot about how to cheat, I've seen others use beads instead of nupps, but I was determined. I found out quickly that I cannot purl through the back loops of five stitches. So I came up with my own method. Although I may have read about it somewhere I have never seen it done. I use a very little crochet hook. It looks like this.
You have to slip the crochet hook through the stitches and pull the yarn back through and then get it on the right hand needle. I need about four hands to do this but it has been working. Not fast, but working. And I am on the last row of the nupps. Sixteen rows of the peaked edging and then the bind off.
I think I'll finish just in time to get a medal in the Laceweight Long Jump.
And to celebrate, I ordered this:
from Beaverslide Dry Goods. I'm going to make the Apres Surf Hoodie while I'm in the lace mood.
