Learned Today: Knit Backwards for Bobbles

While I was working on a couple of Fall/Winter designs that involve cables and bobbles and I was researching and surfing the web, I came across this really neat "trick" to speed up knitting bobbles.

In summary: instead of turning your work to work a back row for your bobble and then turning your work back, you knit backwards for those few stitches with the right side always facing you.

Here is a nice video with Eunny showing the backwards knitting (starts at about 3 min into the video):

It really speeds up things and you should give it a try for this fall and winter seaons.
