100 Happy Days – Day 68
Today, I finally found time to try out the Viking Knit Chain kit I bought last month. The tutorial is for an 18″ necklace (I’m making mine slightly longer) and I’m using copper.
The actual method is fairly straightforward; the tricky bit is getting the knit even, tidy and straight looking – not nearly as easy as you might imagine, as you can probably see from the first photo. Still, it was an enjoyable activity.
I haven’t finished the necklace yet, although the chain is made for it – I need to make the fastenings and links for it yet, but that’s not likely to happen tonight!
