Knitting the Kimberley

It took me two and a half hours to knit one row. It's the bobble row and I'm very pleased with it. Each bobble is three stitches, into which I knit three times (9sts) then do six rows, then decrease back to three. There is only one intervening stitch. What an effort.
The only issue I have at the moment is how I'm going to mount it. I keep thinking of a block of timber, not as frame, but as background. (????) I think I might have to make a trip to a second hand timber yard and see what is available.
This week is very much back to school, yesterday was uniforms, today books, tomorrow stationary. At least I get to wander around Officeworks looking at very cheap stationary. It's always good value at back to school time.
PS sorry about the picture, the knitting is cream.

Love the bobbles - they're a great way to get some really interesting texture (I just loathe knitting them though, if only they didn't take so long to knit!)
