In the years before 800 A.D., the Vikings portaged their ships across the narrows of the Sõrve Peninsula on Saaremaa. This location is the land where my maternal ancestors have lived for generations. Family stories suggest that at least one of the explorers may have fallen in love with a local maiden and chosen to settle there to live out a more “civil” existence. This collection of patterns is subtly inspired by this historic fable.
