An unexpected surprise

Yesterday a box arrive from the post office.I was not expected anything yet .I open the box and I found two books for my son and this unsual surprise.

If you try to find this somewhere on the web good luck because I spend hours to try.This are bobbins for making viking bobbin braid also call whip cord.The first time I saw this it was in the book Viking dress garment clothing by Nille Glaesel.It's impossible to buy , if you know where please let me know.It's something so specific for a small group of person who may use it but I found this SCA document which explain how to do it yourself.

This wonderfull gift is from my father in law.He doesn't work anymore and when my mother in law don't keep him busy with renovations of the house , he like working the wood.I send him a lot of picture and description of different thing I could possibly use .He did the bobbins in less then 2 weeks.Each bobbin is made of a single piece of wood and is historically correct .I'm currently working on a costume which will benefit of bobbin braid.

A huge Thank You to my father in law which I will call today .
