Sculpted Knits

In addition to working with circular needles to knit,
here is a fun project I enjoy, making I-cord,
a circular knit using 4 stitches on double ended needles.
When I first learned to do this,
there was a lot of frustration and foul language,
but after a while it just became enjoyable.
I started making it several years ago for purse handles,
and now use it for key chains,
and most recently, these sculpted knit necklaces,
which have been a real hit at handmade markets.
