>The Bond Magicord Machine

>I cord can be used as a trim or edging and also to embellish your knitwear. You can plait three lengths together and sew the braid onto a jumper to give a mock cable effect.

The Bond Magicord Machine makes i cord quickly and easily. There are other similar machines available but the Bond Magicord is the one I have.

It can be a bit tricky getting it started but once you get going you can produce yards and yards of i cord in no time at all:

I found instructions online showing how to make an i cord scarf – here’s my effort that I made three years ago:


The instruction manual that came with the machine has lots of ideas on what you can make with your i cord including curtain tie backs, bags, place mats, coasters, hairslide and jewellery. I’m sure there are lots of other things you could make – your only limit is your imagination!

I wonder if it would be possible to knit something with your i cord using very big needles. I can’t see any reason why you couldn’t but what would you knit with ‘yarn’ that thick?

Talk to you later,

    >Knitted i-cord would make an incredibly cushiony rug; garter stitch in yarn to match the bathroom? Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.What is/is a jackanory?

    >It was a mistake – I put the wrong title on the post!I wrote a post on my other blog about someone who tells a good story.Jackanory was a children’s TV programme where well known actors and such would read out a story.For some reason known only to me I went and put the same title on this post – I will change it now!

    >Bineet, I have no idea what you are talking about but I do think you made an unfortunate spelling mistake there.

    Reblogged this on My Knitting Machines And Me and commented:

    As there is no knitting to report and isn’t likely to be for some time, I thought I’d try WordPress.com’s ‘Random Post’ and ‘Reblog’ features. I kept clicking on ‘Random Post’ until I found one that might be useful then I clicked ‘Reblog’.
    I’ve never tried this before so I’m not sure what happens when I publish it. Here goes.
