Any suggestions from anyone out there? What is this Viking kit I've been reading about? Is it similar to Titan, and how do I find more info? Thanks again, you have been very supportive!

The Viking Knit is what the Titan chains are. That's what the weave is called. You could try Creative Opportunities. They also do jewelry. There is a thread on them. It's under Brand New Craft Company. I haven't tried them yet because I wanted to get the Titan Chains going but eventually I will do a project from them. All the posts seem like positive ones and the owner of the company Christine also responded a few times on it. My advice is read all the posts and even call Christine if you have any questions about any of the projects.Good luck!

Well, I am sending my first sample tomorrow. I received my kit on Saturday and worked on the Style 1 chain on/off for a few days and completed it. After using store bought wire, I practiced the double-knit weave for a few attempts and finished that one today. Fingers crossed for some good feedback.

I will say one thing...me and the draw plate were not playing nicely and I was having trouble pulling the finished product through the second to the last hole. Then, I smiled sweetly at my husband and asked him to hold the draw plate while I pulled it through and it worked the first time. I wasted so much time being stubborn...LOL!

Hi, Sorry but I just had to laugh, I had the same problem when I did my first bracelet. I am alone most of the time so I had to find another way. I now use the back of my kitchen chair, it has strips of wood w/ spaces in between. Seems to work well!

That is an awesome idea with the chair! Also, I thought about trying to figure out a way to use my feet, but was scared that I wouldn't pull it straight. LOL

Update: Received my first sample back with a few notes on uniformity. Plus, they sent me some samples as well, which is very helpful. I'm going to work on my second samples tomorrow and tighten up my technique. Yay!

For those of you that are already approved, can you take a peek at these photos. This is my second attempt and they mentioned that I just needed to tighten up the chains a bit and make them more uniform, especially on Style 1.
