Another Tatter !! part 2
I went to the Knit and Natter afternoon today, and Pat was there again. She hadn't brought her shuttles, but guess what, I just happened to have a pair wound ...... I got her to make a ring and then showed her how to do a split ring. She found it quite difficult to begin with ... all those years of flipping ... but got it in the end and made one. She said she will practice at home, now she understands how to do it. Trouble is, she starts work next week after a spell at home, so doesn't think she will have much time to tat, but at least I have shown her a new technique.
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
