Ooo, nifty! I may have to give this a go sometime soon. I've done something similar wrapping stones, but I've never tried to like this before. :love:

Great tutorial! You make it look so simple, yet the end result is elegant & complex. Now I need to find a beading or craft store in my area; that will be the hard part! lol You've done a terrific job! :iconvikingplz:

The good thing here is, that all you need is a thin wire.. if you will make a one-color viking knitting, all you need is an old coil with a thin copper wire ;)
I'm very glad you like it and I do hope you'll try that :happybounce:

Hopefully I can find some wire & end caps in my area. If not, there's always the internet, haha! :iconwireplz: I see you found a lovely use for your newest bicolor viking knitting. You're very good with polymer clay. I especially like the transition between the sky & water. :iconbeachplz:

Thank you :aww: The transitions are what I like on polymer clay most.. nothing else can make them so clear and regular :P

You're very welcome! How do you fire your clay -- kiln, oven, flamethrower? (Just kidding about the flamethrower!) :iconkillitwithfire::iconburningplz:

Wow, thank you very much. But my problem right now is finding the thin colored wires. Looks like I'll have to make a trip to one of the bigger stores.

Here such thin colorful wires can be bought as for arranging of flowers, maybe try flower shop too. I hope it helps :)

I sometimes feel bad for your fingernails. I've done maybe two wire works in my entire life and my nails always suffered for it ^^;

Eveqi Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013
Thank you :D These wires are thin and based on copper, so they are pliable. The worst it was with stainless steel. Oh and I turn the wire start a bit, thus it works as surgery needle and knitting is easier :P

Oh, I still need to get up my bravery and try this someday, I've been too much of a wimp to even try single color. You do make it look pretty doable, but I can't see how to finish it?
Reply
:iconeveqi:
Eveqi Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013
I'm happy you like it and I hope you will try that ;)
To finish it, I move it off the pen, run it through the holes and use thin wire to stitch up loops on the both ends. Then I use a thicker wire, pin it throught the end, bend it and turn in the direction from knitting, put a bead cap on it (I used simple like these here) and bend the peeping out wire to make a final loop. There you can put a ring and clasp on it. It's better visible here [link] :)

Okay, sounds a bit like a putter with in person kind of deal! (And keep an eye out for bead caps, I don't tend to use them, so don't have a handy stash!)
Reply
:iconeveqi:
Eveqi Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013
Oh those bead caps are fun to use, I have some in my box, but I never have exactly what I need :facepalm:.. I sort of envy owners of bead shops, they can simply go and take what's fitting, I have to travel over whole city to get those two tiny pieces :D
Reply
:iconmagpie-poet:
magpie-poet Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013
Oh yeah, and the place near me is so damn expensive, I tend to make a list and wait for the bead shows further out and hope like hell they have what I need!
