I am bubbling with excitement because it is time for a new clue!
Have you got your last clue finished? Do you have a lot of tiny bubbles? Do you have a lot of medium size bubbles? Then it is definitely time for the next clue. FAIR WARNING! At the very end of the post there will be a spoilers picture of Clue 1. If you are not done with clue one then don’t scroll to the very end of this post.

Cut your yarn leaving an 8” long tail; draw this tail through the last stitch to secure it. Using one of your tails, gather the edge of your flat circle into a bubble; stuffing lightly as you go. Knot the two ends together; leaving the length for attaching later. Repeat until you have all 9 bubbles done. Set aside for later.
Handles (make 2)
Using the 2 needle I-cord technique described in the previous post and CC, make a 4 sts I-cord the is 5” long. BO, leaving a tail long enough sew the handles on with. Set aside for later.
Clue one should look something like the picture below. Next week Clue 3 plus a picture of Clues 1 & 2 together.
