In addition to updating some research (and the Resources tab on this page), as well as some of the materials and bibliography for the Viking Wool class that I am teaching this weekend, I think I can say I am grasping naalbinding. My first sock is done save for finishing the top. Second sock just needs the toe and heel. Aside from some videos on Oslo stitch, I have pretty much winged it and tried to do what seemed to intuitively work just to figure out the mechanics of this. It really does make sense now. I cannot wait to finish the second sock and then start a pair for my boyfriend. Yarn used is Alafoss Lopi wool from Iceland.
I dance, race cars, play video games and am on a fantastic journey to recreate the past via costume, textiles, dance and food.
