  1. Oh, what a lovely idea! I like to with my lucet but don’t often have a real plan for the resulting cords – I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing with Party in Your PJs!

  2. These are so sweet! And I’ll bet they’d work with the finger knitting my girls love but I can never find a use for. 🙂 I’m pinning this for sure!

    Found you on Inspire Me Monday!
