Winner of the Lazee Daizee Guide to Viking Knit Book Giveaway

By on Monday, July 17, 2017 2 Comments

Even those who were familiar with Viking Knit were keen to learn about last week's book giveaway. Reader, Wayne Wiley said, "I had been making viking knit using the dowel for years. Bought the Lazee Daizee and love it. Now I need the book to improve my skills." 


The inventors'  Lazee Daizee Guide to Viking Knit book is indeed a handy guide for tips and inspiration to really utilize this technique a great deal more than most of use do. Not just for beginners, either.

After writing the two leather Viking Knit bracelet tutorials (Part 1 and Part 2), I wondered if YOU were wondering which size tool to get. It really comes down to personal preference. If you want dainty wire or tightly knitted leather Viking Knit, get the the smaller 1/4 inch tool . But if you like big and bold or prefer to drawn down to an intermediate size, then by all means get the the newer and larger 1/2 inch tool.

So who won this great guide book?  I numbered all the eligible entries and got the random number generator over on random.org to do the picking. The winner is 2SistersJewelry!  Congratulations!

  1. Well, shoot. I waited to buy the Lazee Daizee Guide because I just knew I would be selected. Life just isn't fair sometimes. Oh well, I just ordered the book and am looking forward to studying it.

    By the way, I am working diligently to master Yoola's ISK Shogun Element. I'm getting there and have almost completed the first element. Not saying I won't throw it away and start over, but as a practice, I'm starting to get the feel for the method. I find that my eyes require a lot of help, so I use my lighted magnifying class and it helps a lot. We were on a cruise of the Norwegian Fjords and I thought I was going blind with the poor light. I had brought it to try at those times when we were at sea - big mistake. Fortunately I had brought some of my kumihimo projects to occupy my time.

    As always, I look forward to your blogs. They are always interesting and intriguing - giving me plenty of things to think about and to aspire to.

    Thanks,
    Wayne Wiley

    1. That is too bad the random number generator didn't pick you! But have fun with Viking Knit.

      Do keep on trying the ISK technique. It takes a while. With practice, you will not need the light and magnifying glass assistance. Are you using a larger hook size? I started with 2 mm, dropped it to 1.5mm and stayed with 1 mm for the longest time. Although I can do it with 0.6 mm, I still like to use the 1 mm for easier hooking. Once you are practiced, the way you hold the hook will make the hooking part very easy and you do not have to look closely at all!

      ISK is something I often do on long car journeys when it is not my turn to drive!
