A site dedicated to things having to do with Fiber Arts, from spinning to a finished product.  The main focus is on Knitting, Medieval style, with forays into Nalbinding, Spinning, and maybe a little weaving.  I learned to spin to support my historic knitting, and learned to nalbind as a result of research into early knitting.  This will remain a work in progress, and things will change quite often.  I want to be able to offer patterns, both medieval and modern, and share my research and resources.  If you have questions, or would like to add some knowledge to my pitifully small store, feel free.  If your find an error in one of my patterns, please let me know.  Proof-reading is welcome.  I would like to know how my patterns work for you.   Just pardon my ignorance while I learn the system and how to present my information.



These are my Striped Stockings.  Medievalish in the sense that I saw a picture of an illustration in a 13th century bible that showed women wearing green and white striped stockings.  They could possibly have been cloth stockings, they could have been done in nalbinding, or they could have been knitted.  Documentation for knitting is a bit iffy in that period unless you were in what is now Switzerland.  Still, I knit, I knit stockings.  So I knit striped stockings just for fun and 'cause it will look amazing under my garb at events.  Guaranteed to start a dialog about fiber stuff, so a good investment in time any way you look at it.  They were so much fun to knit.
