A couple of weeks ago this weird looking thing came in mail. Embellish knit i-cord maker.
If only I had thought about it when I was knitting my Arabesque pullover. All these endless i-cords were handknit.
After this pullover I thought I would never make one more i-cord ever again! It took forever! But right now a whole new world of yarn possibilities is opening to me!
It was a little bit fussy in the beginning, but when I figured it out, I just couldn’t stop! So the last week was basically devoted to i-cords.
I like to carry it around, so my hands are always busy while I am watching something, sitting next to a campfire or taking the long road trips. This is such a “no-brainer” compared to all complicated projects I got myself into 🙂 No wonder I am not making that much progress on my St. Brigid project!
I thought I figured it all out before I saw this video – How To Knit I-Cord the Fast Way. Oh my! Now I want to try it. Could I imagine 5-6 years ago when I was trying my first cast on that someday I’ll be frantically looking for a screwdriver drill to make something called an I-cord (where “I” stands for “idiot”)?! My husband thinks I am out of my mind 🙂
