Nalbinding!

I havn't seen any posts here recently, but never hurts to try to pop in and contribute. Post guys, I want to see your fiber arts!

Christmas break is nice because I find I have lots of free time. I've been working on nalbinding. Below is all of the things I made with some very pretty red wool yarn I picked up (Lamb's Pride brand). Its a hat, done in lots of different stitches, because I was experimenting, mittens done in plain Oslo stitch, and the start of some toes for socks. Then I ran out of the yarn :D I have no documentation for the open slit in the mittens, but I wanted them there so I can use my fingers when needed without taking of the mittens.

And next is a hat made out of some super think yarn I had.  Love this stuff.  The hat is done in York stitch.  Mostly anyways.  The very top is Oslo I think, decided to change after I had already started.

Hope you enjoyed!

Hi! I just started teaching myself naalbinding last night. Do you know of any online communities that specialize in this? I don't know anyone else who does this, and I'm learning mostly from videos made by people whose language I don't understand. Thanks!

I don't know if any such communities at all :( I learned the initial stitch from a local laurel, and got the rest from youtube videos. I typically search things like "nalbinding" or oslo stitch, or york stitch. There are at least a few english speaking ones :)
