Adventures of an I-Cord Maker

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 couldnโ€™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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ย an I-cord (where “I” stands for “idiot”)?! My husband thinks I am out of my mind ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Brilliant! Just brilliant! I have to buy one of those. I already have the drill. My kids are going to think I lost my mind ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I got one of these, too! I love it! Haven’t quite figured out exactly what I’ll use it for (of course now I have the embellish knit, I don’t seem to be needing any i-cord), but it’s a handy little tool to have.

  3. Oh my that drill attachment looks like crazy fun. I reckon my kids would be fighting to the death to use it. I could have me some handy little workers!
