I've been selling off what I don't want from my Christmas yarn bonanza. One item that is not getting any action is a large lot of maxi cord (thick, braided nylon for macrame). I find this stuff all the time at yard sales--cheap--and never bother with it, since I don't do macrame. Now that it looks like I might get stuck with a whole box full of it, I decided to grab my size 15 needles and knit up a sample. WOW! It comes out super thick and springy -- perfect for door mats and dog beds. YEE-HAH! I'll leave it listed for another week or so, then, if it doesn't sell, you'll see my maxi-cord knitting projects over here in my FOs. :woot: Anybody else do anything knitty with maxi cord?
