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.)
