I finally found a way to link knitting with viking stuff in one post.
I discovered "That's my middle name" yesterday and she's having a contest. The prize is yarn for a Kauni skirt. You know about the beautiful Kauni sweaters, right? The Yarn Harlot, among others have posted their progress with the beautiful sweater. There is even a photo of That's My Middle name and Stephanie and others in their sweaters on her site.
What does this have to do with Vikings? Well, I had never been to Ruth Sørensen's site, she is the designer of Kauni. Be sure to visit. Not only does she weave, but she makes Viking Jewelry.
