I also made an i-cord with 5 stitches using my DPNs (double pointed needles) made it into a little bracelet for my niece.We got The Four Seasons of Brambly Hedge by Jill Barklem from the library...what a sweet book, the stories are lovely and illustrations beautiful! I especially love this wintry scene above.
