Remember the I-cord knitting I did a while ago? Well, I bought myself some nice black cotton yarn, and knitted a very long I-cord with it. This was purely to relieve work stress and minimise neighbourly murderous thoughts; I didn't actually plan to do anything with it. (Knitting and crocheting are great stress-relievers. I found that out many years ago when I was writing exams. You just knit and knit, and at the end you pull it all out and start over again. I know it sounds completely wacky, but hey, it worked for me ...) Anyway, I was looking at this long string of black I-cord the other day and wondering what to do with it. So I used it as yarn, and knitted a small, chunky rectangle with it.
Double knitting, get it??
And once I had my small rectangle, I decided to make it into a winter choker. It is over 2 inches wide, so it is lovely and warm around my neck. I used an old Xmas decoration and one of the buttons in my stash to close it.
PS I am having a BLOG party tomorrow night. Not on my own blog though, but on yours! Yes, for the first time in months I am setting aside two hours to visit you all. I am not quite finished with the editing, but I am checking the last of the second pages - so there is a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel. Keep the bubbly on ice, please! And a slice of chocolate cake will go down really well ...
