I used Lion Brand Micro Spun in Mango with size 0 dpns. Though it was hard using such small delicate needles it whipped up pretty fast. And though its not perfect (it was my first time using dpns!!) I am quite proud....

Yay! I was inspired by this post Smiley I have really enjoyed reading about/seeing other craftsters' iCord projects Smiley Just thought I'd post my own (in pink!) everything I make lately seems to be pink.....

Hah, Andrea

awesome idea!  Grin As soon as I saw you're little headphone sleeves I googled how to I-cord.  Once I get that down, I'm going to try making a pair of headphone sleeves.  How exactly did you knit the headphonesinto the sleeve though.  I understand where the hole is through the middle of the i-cord, but I dont understand where you put the headphone cord when you started.  Help?  Please?

i had this Q, too. when you slide the work to the other end of the DPN, you bring your working yarn BEHIND the headphone cord and keep going. always have the cord in the back of your work, and make sure the yarn goes across the back of it.
So do you just bring the yarn behind the headphone cord when you move the yarn to the other end of the needle? I did it really wrong but started over and only one side looks regular to me now.
So here are some pictures. Maybe someone can help me.
Here is the front side

and here is the other side. It doesn't look right to me. Am I doing something wrong or is it ok?

it looks fine, but you may get the same look all the way around if you make sure the pull the yarn tight at the first stitch.

originator of the term "crackster", as in craftster is like crack.

that was mine looked like. so what you do is every few inches, you should kinda roll it around in your fingers. the stitches will give in the tighter place and fill up the loose area. it's fine, it just needs a little finagling.

Ok. Thank you so much. I'm glad i'm doing it right. I wasn't sure because I haven't knit anything for awhile and everyone else's looked so good.

Phew, I'm not the only one who used bright orange yarn ^_^

Mine's pretty bright too, this red was the smallest yarn I had so there wasn't much choice. I had the same exact problem with the back of mine being too loose and had posted about that earlier. The back still looks funny if you look closely but when its hanging on my body no one's looking that close anyways. People ask me what the point of it is but besides being super cool, my headphone wires never get tangled anymore!Here is my headphone sleeve together with my matching iPod sock!
