What is a nupp in knitting?

I have a pattern which calls for knitting "nupps". I don't know what a nupp is, and no amount of Googling has helped me out here! Can anyone explain what a nupp is and how I create one? Thanks!

    A "nupp" is a small "bobble" made out of one stitch for a small flower. It's an Estonian knitting technique and creates a knitted lace.

    To make one, you knit a stitch, do not take it off the left hand needle; and then follow the sequence *yo; k1* into the same stitch as many times as desired. You can make any odd number of stitches, depending on how fat you want your nupp to be. On the next row all the nupp stitches are knit or purled together.

    On this page is a picture of a shawl with "nupps" in the pattern:

    It's the one called "Lily of the Valley Stole". If you enlarge that picture by clicking on it, you'll be able to see the nupps, with open spaces under them, creating the lacy pattern.
