Red Pink Punk

I didn't know how to make i-cord (idiot cord - so-called because, well, you know why) before I bought this knitting dolly. Usually they only have 4 pins but I wanted a really thick chunky cord so I held out till I came across this wooden one which has 8. Isn't a thing of beauty?

I love red and pink together in my craft - it satisfies my punk urge without descending into wearing a bright red coat with a pink brolly (I have done this), which really isn't becoming for such a plain mousey shy girl :) I really love bright yellow and green together, but have no plans to wear that combination any time soon...

The best thing about making i-cord is that you don't have to endlessly make sure you have all your stuff with you if you move with your knitting - no pattern, no pencil to work out any maths that confuses you, nothing...just pure knitting enjoyment. Not that I'm not enjoying knitting my very cleverly shaped big teddy bear with a moss stitch coat...oh no :)

Happy knitting :)
