Recently, Annah Kay posted a blog about her journey into using the "Viking Weave" technique. Well, that got my mind a buzzing as I tried to envision what that might look like and what it might entail in the creation process.
Fortunately for me, she soon posted the first stages of her creation and I was able to see what the Viking Weave was all about. Intriguing!
I did a quick search on the process and it really has my mind boggled as to how you can "knit" wire so beautifully and keep it all even, but that is where the tools and the practice come into play.
The history of this technique is interesting. "Viking knit is an ancient form of circular wire weaving also known as the trichinopoly chain. [...] It's known as the Viking knit because several archaeological finds dating back to about the 7th century AD were located in the Scandinavian countries like Norway and Sweden." [source]
As for techniques, tips, suggestions and tutorials, I will leave that up to you to share in the forums, creations and blogs. I look forward to learning more about this technique!
Thank-you Annah Kay for posting your blog.
