These look beautiful. I love Vikking knit wire, though I didn't know that was what it was called until recently. I would like to try it some day, if I can find the patience. ( I don't do well with things that are very detailed.)

I too love Viking knit. Initially I was very reluctant to try but later when you get hold of the weave it turns out to be pretty simple. Try and let me know. Thank you :)
