Boy, if Michael Phelps compelled me to distraction two weeks ago, he has nothing on this week’s Democratic National Convention. I am in awe. I guess that’s all I can say about that.
Believe it or not, my mind has been puzzling about i-cord, and what you can do with it. And look! I’m not the only one who wonders such things. Look what I found:
- Sarah Bradberry has a 101 things you can do with i-cord page on her knit wiki.
- Nona Knits writes about i-cord glove fingers
- i-cord snakes
- i-cord necklaces
What I am looking for and not finding much of is the concept of making little animals and toys out of i-cord. The snake listed above is an obvious option, but what about things like bunnies and kittens and puppies? Spiders? Crocodiles? I’ve recently become fascinated by anigurumi as an art form, and I’m wondering whether I could be just as clever with i-cord as my primary medium?
More importantly, why oh why is my mind spinning with these thoughts? I have a baby sweater to finish! Eeeek!
Ciao for now!
