This Is what I made after going to a workshop in naalbinding. I haven't really gotten around to making more yet, but I do have plans.

It's a tiny backpack, pulse warmers and a kitty toy. The yarn failed me two thirds into the backpack so I had to finish with another colour and I really hated it so I bought some raw wool in beautiful colours and hid the grey. It looks like a mushroom when you wear it. A psycedelic mushroom Cheesy

Yay for a fellow nalbinder! Your stitches look super even (so unlike my first pieces Smiley ) and I like the psychedelic backpack. It looks like you had worked with grey so long that your color sense couldn't take it any more and went totally berserk Smiley Grin

Well, I thought that grey was a bit too anonymous. Since I almost exclusively wear black clothes I use colour to brighten it up a bit. I love bright colours. Smiley

It's really not that hard once you get the hang of it. After a while you do it without looking. But try with a white or light grey yarn first. It makes it easier to see the stitches.
