  • Much fun has been had by myself and even Mr.Bobble as we have been designing our new motifs for our upcoming products. They just don't make em like they used to -check these out for starters:

    The images are so much fun- mainly as they are so stylised- but that is what I like about them. Motifs were repeated across the width or just solo, and I love the idea of embellishing them with a bow on a cat or a pom pom on a bunny tail.

    How gorgeous is the middle boy?! And you can not go wrong with a nautical theme.

    One of my favourite sources are the old Sears catalogues; here are a few gems:

    We have looked at loads of old 40's and 50's patterns and made our own motifs which will be knitted into our new projects. Can't wait to get knitting them!

    Here at Bobble we are busy working on new products to sell online. In the meantime I can't help but pick up new projects that get flung at me- here are a couple of recent ones. I just can't say no!

    This is my baseball style cardigan for a baby. It is based on a 1950's vintage pattern which I then amended.

     

    I was then asked to make a cardigan for a friend's little one- we did not know the sex at the time, but my brief was to make it colourful and a bit crazy.....

    So, I used the same pattern as the cardigan above but with stripes and a couple of pompoms...and here she is!

    This is a 2-tone fairisle pink and blue striped cardi; the cherry on the cake is the 2 pompoms on her shoulders. Apparently they have been a big hit with her fans.

    I like how one cardi pattern can look so different depending on the details.
