That was the first thing I learned after watching a Knitting Daily TV YouTube video. The second thing I learned was that nupps are really not that hard. Not that I was overly worried about learning a new technique, after all, all knitting is created one stitch at a time. I can handle that.
The trick is to keep your stitches loose, and I mean loose, for the nupp to turn out right. Off I go; I've got nupps to knit. :)
