Anne Marie Haymes or Sigurd Briansdotter, as she is known throughout the SCA, takes you through cast-on, stitches, bends, techniques and everything you need to create hats, mittens and socks in the old tradition of nalbinding. She specifically covers the stitch used in a mitten that was found in a bog or Asle mosse in Västergötland, northeast of present-day Falköping. Her newer book, Nalbinding Made Easy, is also available from Ursula's Alcove.
