@pseudo_pix:
I have posted my purses in the "purses, bag and wallets", and I have some nalbound amigurumi that might go into the toy section. I was thinking about posting in the crochet section, but I don't feel comfortable with that. For anything that is neither clothes nor bags nor toys, I might end up in the "miscellanious topics".
I still don't know where hats or socks should go - clothing maybe, but they'd be quite lonely there.
It could be quite some time before we have the hundreds of entries that'll get us a separate nalbinding category Smiley Maybe a category for historic crafting would be big enough. Let's make that craft inspired by historic techniques. That'd be my favourite category!

Yeah I had all the same thoughts. But also I pondered needle work as you do work with a needle.

Hehehe..that would be a wonderful category - please say when it happens Grin

Fascinating. I've never seen nailbinding before. I like the idea of a board for historic techniques.  Cool

I don't see how that's naughtier than the dildo cozy...?

she might not be using it for something as naughty as the dildo but it does look naughtier then the dildo cozy. it looks like a ribbed condom. IMO

@shaints: Yes, that is a good explanation. I didn't want to overload my posting with all that, mainly because I would have explained in in ten times your length Smiley Thanks for the link.

Well, I wouldn't have minded because I guess I'm a bit of a nerd and need to satisfy my (very thirsty) curiosity. Cheesy So it was kind of inevitable for me to ask (and google it, of course).

Thank you for showing us uncommon things and for the link on nalbinding! And I am indeed quite decent at both crochet and knitting, and that's probably the reason why I found it so interesting.

I second the thanks for telling us about uncommon things. I also think that graduated color in your cosy works really well.

Oh, thank you for the links!! I've wanted to learn naalbinding for over a decade, and never could find a decent instructional site!!!

I did manage to learn sprang weaving, very fun!!!

I like the dye job, the color change is subtle but pretty!  Would this be a handy cozy for Easter?  LOL!
