Close up of the split:

Progress Shot:

Needless to say, I was very inspired by this post:
Although after a bit of Googling, I found out that this isn't entirely uncommon, but this post was definitely the first time I have seen it done!  As inspiring as it was, I sort of didn't follow her tutorial due to my hatred of doing icords... I can never get that first stitch in the row to be consistent.... 
Anyway.  I used a Premier Yarns brand of sock weight yarn, color "Picasso Marble".  Knitting needles are size 00, and I just knit the whole thing in the round.  The majority of the cord was 6 stitches per round, except for the that connector bit at the split, which was double that.  I also stopped a ways from the actual ear bud because it is supposed to wrap around the top of my ears, and I didn't want it to get chunky.  Because of the size of the yarn and needles, it took quite a bit of time, (almost three weeks!)  but I really love them!  I love how small the stitches look, I love how snug the cord is inside the knit... Love it love it love it!
