I was playing with scraps again last night. I've been taking small lengths of leftovers, too small for anything else (even a one-round hexagon), and making Romanian cord. I just make them as long as I came with the yarn that I have, so they're all different lengths. I had some in a bag and have been getting ideas about various ways to use these cords. I finished off a couple this morning and am well pleased.
This is where I left things last night.
I am quite taken with this Romanian cord stuff. The structure of it lends itself well to having other kinds of stitching attached to it--it is often used as a base for needle laces of various kinds. But it also has some substance and it can be manipulated and hold its shape while still being flexible. It would also work as a border around other forms of stitchery. I'll be playing around some more with these cords!
