I-Cord Machine
You know, I always assume that you all know everything that I do. But, this time, I thought I should check.

I HATE to make I-Cord. When I saw this machine online, it really grabbed my attention.

I know what I want for my birthday!

I have one, and it's a PITA. The little hooks snag the yarn and it gets all tangled. KK and I were trying to use it the night I bought it and we just decided it's junk

icord sucks, but i don't think this thing is worth it, personally.

if you buy it anyway, though, I won't hold it against you

That's sad to know. I saw a scarf knitted out of I-cord and it looked really cool. oh well...

I have a Clover Wonder Knitter and I love it!!! It comes with 2 disks for making either a 3 stitch cord or a 6 stitch cord.

I've got one of those, and I think it's alright. I will agree that it can be a PITA to get started, but after that it's pretty smooth sailing for me.

Whenever I need an icord made, my husband and daughter are both happy to help -- they think the Embellish knit is great fun.

Hmmm. :thinking: Two opinions now....and another option!

Maybe I can get out of making manual i-cord after all!

My Hobby Lobby carries both of those, Sandy. I've been thinking about using a 40% off coupon to get one like the Embellish Knit, so I wouldn't be upset if it didn't work as well as I hoped.
