I recently saw a freeform knit/crochet shawl on the web somewhere that had i-cord fringe (mixed with those curly spiral crochet things, that you usually see in the hair of little girls).  It looked fantastic.  I wish I could remember where I saw that shawl.  Sad

I knitted a whole ball of yarn in one evening with my i-cord maker... I thought of making a big shopping bag with it, but it knits up quite firm, so maybe table mats???


When someone mentioned trimming bedding with it, I imagined someone making a bedspread out of it- can you imagine the weight of it??? LOL, you'd be trapped under the covers!!  Shocked  Cheesy

I've always thought of doing this, but haven't tried it yet. Seems like a good way to use up leftovers in coordinating colors.

Craftkate-Thanks! it doesn't look like the exact same machine, but it's close, I'll see if it works....I have a Clover one, but thier website doesn't even mention the I-cord machine. Very Strange.

I love the idea of the rug and the scarf.  Thanks for some great ideas!!

Ravenheart--did you lose the instructions?  I have them at home, if you're really desperate.

D'oh.  Roll Eyes I guess it says "clover machine" all over this post. I didn't realize clover made one. The only ones I've ever seen are the bond ones. I should really read rather than skip messages. I'm digging the idea of rug now too. It would be a fun way to use up little left over yarn bits.
