Though I haven’t had the chance to try nalbinding again since last week (too busy knitting obscene mittens, which shall be shown off next week if all goes to plan), I have got the pictures off my iPod at last. Yep, I am super high tech don’t you know?
My first attempt was messy but serviceable. It was at least recognisable as a string that someone had tried to organise into some sort of chain… thing.
I tried again since apparently my procrastination skills are transferable to other crafts, and this is the result:
Of course then I tried a different stitch to make something fancy. I like to run before I can, well, anything. So that didn’t go so well, if I’m honest.
As is normal for me when I’m trying to learn something new, I ragequit then spent the next twenty-four hours telling everyone how amazing this new thing is. Because it’s totally new. To me.
Turns out I can’t pronounce ‘nalbinding’ even vaguely right. Maybe I won’t mention it in a podcast.
For those of you who wondered how to nalbind, I found a video that I managed to follow despite being unable to listen to the audio. There are many out there though that go far past this basic Oslo stitch.
If you try it out, let me know. I want to see your creations!
