three times the smarts

yay - all the knitting on the top secret rbpm is done.
I'll have this weekend for finishing, then it's, well, finished =)

I love rbpm.
I think I'll start one for myself soon =)
Here it is all cast off



As well as being gorgeous, rbpm taught me three things on the weekend:

1) three needle bind-off.


The only way of describing my first few tries of this one is that it was like trying to eat mini-m&ms right-handed with chopsticks. =S


2) applied i-cord (click for a fab tutorial!) =)


This is so cool - probably the coolest knitting thing I know how to do.
Check out how nice it makes my edge!


3) regular i-cord


Could I be the only knitter in the universe to try the applied kind first?
Also mightly cool, super quick and easy =)

Now I just have a little bit of sewing to do, then its done =)
In time for my visit home at Easter

This also means I can now cast-on a new 'bus' project.
I have something in mind - some very pretty mittens =)

besos =)

  1. Congrats on nearly finishing your secret project! With the i-cord edge, is it sewn on, or knitted on as you make the i-cord? Looks very neat, regardless :D

    It's knitted on as you make the i-cord - very clever!

  3. The icord edge looks great. I'm a big fan of icord but haven't tried applied icord edging yet.
