Vikingstrikk

So I took a new class, and learned a new craft. Not that I'm bored or out of work or anything... I know it's crazy, and I have no idea about when I'll make time to practice this...

Anyway, I started something called viking knitting. The craft dates back to at least the viking age, but it has little to do with knitting as we know it. The structure resembles knitting round on four stitches, twisted knit stitches, only you form the loops backwards compared to regular knitting. I'm sure that makes no sense, so please check this out if you want to see it live (video link on the page).

We work with pure silver, and the key to looking like a pro are the goggles, just check out our teacher!

After the knitting we stretched the chains to form smooth braid-like bracelets, and added some closure.

I managed to finish two bracelets during the class. The result:
