nope to nupps

I'm in the home stretch, working the Peaked Edging now. I spent several evenings trying all kinds of permutations to achieve the 'nupps'. With the purl 5 together nigh on impossible for me to execute with my Inox greys, I started trying out different things. I finally settled on a 3-stitch bobble which, while not entirely to my satisfaction, is better than throwing down the knitting in complete frustration. ;)

We have all (?) been there. I cant imagen what the designer was thinking about when she invented it ;/
The-three-and-the-two is the most usual (?) way to solve the knot, I think.

I bought some really pretty beads that I am going to use to substitute the nupps when I get there. I am big on learning as much new stuff in knitting as I can, but I don't really want to learn nupps right now.
