Fingerloop Braiding for the Masses
Many of us like little things - projects that we can take with us when we travel, which we can do meetings, at SCA events or in front of the television in the evening. We also love crafts which allow us to use up leftover bits of cloth, or which keep older children quiet and busy.
Fingerloop braiding may turn out to be that new craft for you, and http://fingerloop.org/ is a great site to visit. It has links, a description of period uses, braid patterns, step-by-step instructions with a video (videos make learning so much easier!), and even a bibliography organized into primary and secondary sources. What fun!
Lots of fingerloop videos: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=fingerloop+braiding
