That is so great. It's a really brilliant idea. Unfortunately I'm not sure how much use I'd have for it, seeing as my MP3 cords are black. Of course, my friends boyfriend has an ipod....

I also like the way the photo's been taken.  Grin

Well, I cast on 4 stitches for the I-cord at the base than when I got all the way to the fork I increased 2 stitches and started essentially knitting it in a round using 4 needles so that it would be tight.  Once I was past the fork and at the base of the 2 wires I put 3 of the stitches on waste yarn and continues knitting the other 3 into an I-cord around one wire.  Once I finished that wire I went back and knitted the other.  I'm still experimenting with the wonders of the I-cord, I know there is more that can be done with it...

Thanks for elaborating Smiley


I'm back after a long time away and trying to find time to craft as I adjust to life as a mom!

At my work we have been frustrated with cabling/cords getting too cold to work outside in the winter.  I kept telling the guys that I could knit a sleeve for the wiring/cabling but they didn't believe me.  I showed them your ipod cord pic and they were impressed!!  Thanks for the explanation of how you did it.  I don't know that I will do this for each piece of equipment we have, but it might be a solution for some!  (now to get them to pay me for it...)

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I wonder if you could do this with french knitting .You know those little knitting sets they give to children with a cotton reel with 4 nails in and you lift the wool over each nail,the tube comes out the bottom. I suppose you would have to make the part where it splits seperately and then join it when you had worked out how to get it on the wires.

I'll bet you could make a smaller one.  When my mom was little, she had a spool with 4 nails in it.  I think I'm going to try that.

Then he asked,"Lord, what about when there was one set of footprints on one side and also a straight line with bootprints on one side and small round circles on the other?" The Lord replied, "Those were when I carried you, and we were joined by a pirate pushing a wheelbarrow."

hmm that is a good idea. i have one of the 'high-tech' knitting spools...not really high-tech lol but one with the little crank wheel. i may try putting my cord down the middle of the spool and see if it works.
