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 sock circa 970 AD that was
found in a grave in Mammen, Denmark.The first stitch is named after this
find and is also called a UOO/UUOO F2. Her first book, The Asle Mitten,
is also available from Ursula's Alcove.
