Naalbinding was a commonly usedteqnique (excuse horrible speeling) by the vikings here in the north.
"Det som länge ansetts vara det äldsta svenska arkeologiska fyndet, "Åslevanten" från Västergötland, har nu Kol-14-analyserats och daterats till mellan år 1510 och 1640." Translation: What has been seen as the oldest swedish archeological finding, "Åslevanten" (a mitten) has now been analyzed and dated to between 1510 and 1640.

I haven't been doing it myself, but I've been promised to be thaught next year by a friend and I'm just a little bit excited Smiley (because besides the three hundred projects I work with at the moment I don't have anything to do Wink )

Hej ewushka! är du svensk? Min mor är svensk (från Sverige), och jag kan faktiskt läsa lite, det var så roligt att få svar på svenska!

When I learned how to nålbind, I found the following links REALLY helpful, also the one you posted. The first one is AWESOME--it is in Finnish but doesn't matter, shows the BEST videos of how to do what people here call the Finnish stitch, it's a great stitch but best of all she shows very clearly the thumb method, applies to all the stitches. A lot of people who learn from diagrams in books do a really slow over under over under way that takes 10 x as long...

To see her video clips you first have to click on her "download Dvix player" link near top of the page. unless you already have that player.

Fantastic Nålbinding Videos --Finnish archeologist's thesis and video instruction clips

Great German/English Site --Bernhard Dankbar's great site-gallery of stitches, instruction

Online (Yahoo) Nålbinding forum --great resource, you can search their archives for TONs of tips, info, including archeological and historical info

Wow, I'm really surprised that a mitten would last 500 years!

They run away with the single socks from your washer tub, and the individual shoes from the side of the road!

Most likely. But considdering the time and love you put into it when you make it, is it strange it has a life of its own?

I have a theory about that.   I strongly suspect that, while we are sleeping, a portal opens between dimensions, and sucks the left socks out of my house, whle, flying in through the portal, hundreds of extra coat hangers come through.   At the end of it all, I have a ton of orphan socks, and a crapload of extra coat hangers that I didn't buy.....
