What I Learned Today

This is what I learned to make today. I took a class on Viking Knit. I had seen this last year on one of the bead artists pages and thought "wow, I want to do that". I bought a kit from a website but the instructions didn't make sense. Now that I have had hands on training I know it's really simple, it just takes a lot of practice. Our teacher was saying it is believed that this was the precursor to knitting with knitting needles. It would be interesting to do some history on this. I'm planning on combining this with my lampworked beads. Just what I need. Another hobby!
