I-Cord with single point needles?
Is there a way to knit ICord using double pointed needles?

You can do it with double points and I've also done it with a circular needle. Just sliding the stitches back to the other end of the circ and starting over again. You can do it on single points but you have to transfer the stitches back to the 'left' needle each time. Way easier the other two ways.

Or you can doubleknit it, and it ends up in a tube... Before I made my dpn's, this is how I did it.
CO 4 st (or however many you need for your Icord)
Row 1 - Sl 1 pwise with yarn in front, knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front, knit one
The stitches that are slipped (always with the yarn in front!!) on one side are knit on the other. This makes a tube very similar to Icord.
Turn and do it again. Over and over and over and over and...

well now i know i saw somewhere that if you didn't have doubles you could knit your row and then put them back on the same needle you just took them off of and do it again. does that make sense? anybody else se this anywhere?

I think that's what knitqueen meant, just put the stitches back on the needle the wrong way (with the yarn on the inside, rather than the end) and pull the working yarn around like you would on dpn's or circs.
