I can remember knitting bobbles many years ago when I used to make Aran cabled sweaters, I'm talking about the odd bobble in the centre of a cabled triangle, I used to look forward to the bobbly bits back then but now well, it was a bit too much making this block, it seemed to take forever, not difficult you understand but very fiddly, I do like the finished result but 23 bobbles resulted in.....
46 ends! Of course if the block was made in just one colour then there wouldn't have been any ends apart from at the start and the finish but then it wouldn't have been so pretty.
Another more colourful example of this block..
