Thanks, I'm pretty happy about how the bag turned out. It's a smallish bag that I'm going to take with me when I walk my dog. Anyway, for all the complaining I did about i-cords, it's really not that bad. I just get super bored when I need to knit a long one and it being looser in some stitches. I suppose because I knitted it I can spot 'imperfections' easily.

The imperfections really don't show. It's a perfectly lovely bag!

Your bag is great! I can't see any flaws in your i-cord. I have no problems with knitting i-cords but I can't say I enjoy it; it's quite boring.

I totally agree on it being boring. Have you tried the i-cord bind off? I actually think it's kind of fun. It's not as boring as a regular i-cord to me, and it's already attached to the project so no sewing on <3 I don't get excited if there's sewing/finishing work involved, tend to avoid it actually. That's why I knit my dog's sweaters in the round, so I don't have to seam anything.

Your work is very pretty!I knitted small Icords in a bag I made to help keep a small acrylic sheet from sliding around . I picked up 3 stitches in each corner and knitted the Icord still it would reach diagonally across the corner and then I knitted the last three stitches normally to bind off and wove in the end.

Beautiful...
Hi!

That's an awesome piece of work and looks totally professional!

I-cord can be very useful although I can see why it's not necessarily considered "fun" by everyone.

I think I know what you're talking about with I-cord bind-off but do you have a source I can look over to make sure I'm thinking of the right technique. I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,

Ruthie

I think your I-cord is very even, I wish mine looked that great! Well done on the purse, it's lovely!
