Here’s the bonus video I finally finished for the students in my Cross-Knit Looping eCourse. My friend Barbara Heike makes and teaches Viking knit jewelry, which uses the structure of cross-knit looping with silver wire as the stitching element. She graciously agreed to let me film her demonstrating her technique.
Viking Kniting — a New Age Looping Field Trip with Barbara Heike
I learned a hundred things that day. Here are just a few:
- I’m making myself a fabric-covered work pad like Barbara’s.
- A good friend (Barbara) will let you photograph her work without polishing it first if you think you’ll get more glare after polishing.
- The tripod has to go on the side of the non-dominant hand unless you’re straddling it (as I generally do).
- I need to learn to separate my curiosity from my camera. I shot quite a bit of footage because I forgot to turn the camera off.
Thank you, Barbara, for sharing with us! It was so much fun I’m thinking I’d like to do some more field trips….
