  2. Would you please explain BOLB? I have been unable to find anything on it?

    1. Gladly, it means to bring your original loop back, basically finding the 1st loops that were on the pegs when you started the leg. You find those pegs by looking at the next peg and fine the yarn line that guides you back to the original loops. This video link might help to show what I am doing there. Please let me know if you have any other questions. You can skip that part of the video if you would like, if it is too frustrating, it is merely a preference and find it helps with sewing up but isn't necessarily needed.

    2. Oh ok, I think I understand now. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I love your work. Have a great week!
