Way, way, way better. ugg australia And that’s really saying something because Thin Mints were placed on this earth to annihilate our self-control with their deliciousness and mock us when we attempt to resist their wily chocolaty-charms. Now, for the sensational, spectacular, staggering, stunning, stupendous, sublime knitted gifts!

I-cord Necklace

We each received an I-cord necklace. ugg australia I-cords became a bit of an inside joke among the knitters of the Knitting Circle because they were declared miraculous and all-powerful by a particularly odd former-member of the Circle. Timberland FR The former-member bought all manner of pricey yarns and made nothing but I-cords with them.

  • Lakaya - thanks for this. I was basically looking for something unique i could do in pink for my mom who is a cancer survivor. as luck would have it, I knitted about 45 inches of i-cord just for the fun of it. its my personal “pink ribbon” was gonna use it for tying in my hair or as a belt. but now im gonna make that necklace. I have a mother of pearl slide that will go great with it but it hadn’t occurred to me until i seen the i-cord necklace….which is gorgeous by the way. ironically I have made donut necklaces like the one up there but out of satin cord. and I have made necklaces wih knitted beads, it just never occurred to me to replace the satin cord with i-cord that I already make.

    Again …. thank you… I feel inspired.ReplyCancel
