I Hate Knitting Bobbles, But...

Just look at these flies with their big buggy eyes! This is definitely a project that makes fussing with bobbles worth it. But I do dislike the bobbles, so it's slow going to get myself through that first row of the pattern repeat.

The pattern is The Fly, inspired by the old Vincent Price movie, and it's part of  Super Scary Sockfest over at Ravelry. I'm using Knitpicks Stroll Tonal in Thunderhead. It was tempting to use a solid and save the tonal yarn for some future project, but I'm glad I decided to use it for this pair. They're fun and challenging enough to deserve the "good yarn." 

I'm linking up to Patchwork Times and Yarn Along

Hi Michelle....I had asked a question about our sock knitting and haven't seen a reply. Could it be because I'm a "no reply" or something? Thanks! Just in

Interesting sock! I agree bobbles are time consuming but effective. I sometimes use a crochet hook to help out the process.
