Macrame in Dressage

Fresh from the Dressage Pony blog comes an equine contribution to the wacky world of macrame.
It reminds me that I keep wanting to macrame one of those Tribal Belly Dance long fringe belts...gotta find the time to do that...

Silberknoten Site

Oh hey, take a look at this: Silberknoten a German site devoted to Viking posaments. Posaments, you say? Hmmm, sounds a bit like passementerie...In this case it's medieval knotwork appliqued onto textiles. Sweet!

Speaking of sweet, Karin sent me a Sami bracelet kit all the way from Sweden! Whoo Hoo! Thankfully, she translated the instructions from Swedish for me. Yes, I know, I have a Swedish name. People think I am Swedish, ergo they think I speak Swedish. I do not. (I wish I did.) I'm not Swedish. My ancestors were Danish. And Dutch. My parents thought Anneke would be easier for Americans to pronounce if it was spelled Annika. (It isn't.)

I've just posted my first tutorial to Jewelry's the Baroque Bracelet I've been teaching around town. I plan to add a few more tutes over the next week or so.
