With my upcoming trip to Pheonix, I’m getting mildly obsessed with luggage ids. I’m not talking about tags with your contact information. I mean things you attach to your suitcase that make it easier to spot when it’s on the conveyor belt.

I made two the other night. One is a stuffed ball and the other is a crocheted hexipuff. It was fun, quick, and a great use for self striping yarn.

I’m also trying to come up with one using lucet cord. Lucet cord is a square cord that is basically a 2 stitch i-cord. I picked up this lucet at Rhinebeck (NY Sheep and Wool) this past October. It took me a little bit to get the hang of it, especially tensioning, but I like the results. I’m thinking of sewing the cord into a circle or braiding it with beads.

(By the way, all the pretty yarns shown up there are from Koigu.)
