I made something other than a blanket or scarf--and I learned new things along the way. I learned how to pick up and knit, knit in the round, and I learned how to make an I-cord. :) Ready for a picture? Here it is:

I'm thinking about making straps to put on the back of it--then my daughter can carry it like a back-pack. So I have a question. The book that taught me to make an I-cord gave instructions for making a three-stitch I-cord. Can you do it with more? To make a wider cord?

I hope you are all having a great week. :)

What a cute project! I like the cheerful color too. Or maybe I am just a plant geek. I love bags. Some time I want to try a drawstring bag and maybe line it with fabric to take the strain off the knitting (and so I can put in lots of pockets). Way to go. Successfully learning new skills is always fun. The blanket is looking good!

Oh, that is such a cute little thing. Can't wait to see pictures of it on your daughter. :-)

I made a six-stitch I-cord. It worked beautifully. :) I made one rather than two because I ran out of yarn! But it's cute slung across my daughter's back. I have pictures but have not uploaded them to my computer yet. :) Soon though.

Very nice! I love it!

I would go ahead and try to make a larger I-cord. I'm not sure what would happen. Keep us posted!

Nicely done! That didn't take you long at all to make!

Cute project - and the color is perfect for spring! Sorry I can't help with the i-cord question - I don't know anything about it. But you could knit straps with a much smaller needle to made a tight fabric that wouldn't stretch much.
