With craft in mind, here is a little craft riddle for you. This one reminds me of Christmas crackers riddles...

Q: What has an eye, but is unable to see?

Oh and while you think of that, some craft Trivia to test your craft knowledge.

Q: What is Nålebinding?

I'll be honest, it sounded like a piece of IKEA furniture to me. I had no idea so if you get this, you are an utter crafting genius, or you have used Google, you cheeky little devil.

So in answer to 'What has an eye, but is unable to see?'. Did you work it out? Drum roll please...It is a needle.

That just leaves 'Nålebinding'.

A: Nålebinding is a fabric creation technique which predates both knitting and crochet.

The technique is distinct from crochet in that it involves passing the full length of the working thread through each loop, unlike crochet where the work is formed only of loops, never involving the free end. It also differs from knitting in that lengths must be pieced together during the process of nålebinding, rather than a continuous strand of yarn that can easily be pulled out.

The word Nålebinding is a Danish word which literally means "binding with a needle" or "needle-binding".

Also known as nalbinding,naalbinding, nålbindning, naalebinding, knotless netting, knotless knitting or single needle knitting.

Archaeological specimens of fabric made by nålebinding can be difficult to distinguish from knitted fabric. Nålebinding is still practiced by women of the Nanti tribe, an indigenous people of the Camisea region of Peru. They use it to make bracelets. Nålebinding also remains popular in the Scandinavian countries as well as in the Balkans.

There you have it. You are ready for the next pub quiz, and the next Christmas cracker.

Have a fabulous weekend, and remember to check out our Instagram page.
