My yarn came in, more on the way and I am onto a new project and yes it is on my YOP list for this year! Amazing huh? I've started the "situpons" which are really just chair pads and for now just one chair pad.
I decided to go with just one color as opposed to a "rainbow" effect as my kitchen is already pretty colorful and busy. I've never done an I-cord before but it's easy except the first stitch you have to do really tight or you end up with a loop instead of a stitch. I did a good job but like the Double Down potholders it is a bit hard on my hands. Great for watching t.v. though as it is pretty mindless after a bit. I need 9 yards of it before I can wind it into a circle and stitch together for a chair pad and with the needles and yarn it cost about $30.00! I could have bought one for less but then that's not why we do this. At least I can order the yarn one chair pad at a time.
Here's the I-cord......this is the same thing I made as a child with one of those spools with the nails...remember those? I'm wondering if the spool would be easier on my hands? LOL!
I also finished my chicken...one of them anyway and no, it wasn't on my original list (I'm SO bad) but it was FUN!
See the tail in the back?
I also got some other yarn when I ordered the chair pad supplies. More yarn you say? Yes, I had to order enough to get free shipping! LOL! This will be featured in my next YOP list.......I call them "Coming Attractions"......and yes, of course it's for a project, you don't think I just order yarn for no reason do you? LOL! I ordered from Deramores as I love getting Royal Mail! Happy Mother's Day to all and I hope all your fiber dreams came true! If not, the internet is open 24/7! You go girls!
