View Full Version : How To Crawl Out of a Round With 2 Colors
23-05-2009, 11:23 PM
Have you ever wondered how to crawl out of a round with 2 colors and keep the colors consistent?:smpullhair: It's a "hair-pulling" thought, isn't it?
For instance, when you're using one color for chains and a different color for rings when you go to make the split chain and split ring (to crawl out of the previous round) how do you do it so that the split chain and ring are the same color?
I finally figured it out!!! With a little help from my friends of course! :yahoo: Woo Hoo!
If you're interested in knowing more feel free to come on over to my blog post about this subject here (http://tattingchic.blogspot.com/2009/05/mock-split-ring.html).
While you're there, don't forget to say hello! :sunnysmile:

Execpt for me not liking split chains LOL
That was one of the most entertaining blog posts I've read in a long time. Thanks for sharing your deep cogitations and helpful hints with us. Would that all tatting riddles led to such creativity.

Great that you have discovered Dora Young's technique. It has actually been around since the early 1970s. Her split chain technique proved more popular, but now you have applied her split ring to something else. I'm sure that she would be pleased about this.

What a way you have to keep things exciting. Now if only I'll remember this when I need it.

Thank you, Sharon and Fox! Awww...shucks! :blush:
Thanks, Anne B! I am with you on not liking split chains! LOL! They make me want to say bad words, LOL! :censored:
Thanks, Lynn! I'm glad you enjoyed my "deep cogitations". I really hadn't thought that hard in a long time, LOL! :doh: I am so glad to hear that you found the post entertaining!
Thank you, Judith! I'm glad to hear that you think that Dora Young would've appreciated someone finding a practical application for her fabulous technique. :smile:
Hi Victats! Well, if you don't remember it, then maybe you'll end up doing what I did and think really hard and figure it out and then think you just made up a new technique! LOL! (rats, this place will only let me use 4 little smileys per post, bummer) Well, here's your smiley ;)

Totally terrific explanation! The more posts on the different tatting techniques, the better, I say. Sometimes a certain photo or phrase may turn out to be the "ah ha!" moment for someone who is struggling to figure out a new idea. Plus, by getting so many new people who are not yet tatters looking at your site, you're doing a great job of spreading the word about tatting being alive and well!

Hi Sara Beth! Thank you for the comment! I really hope you do use that technique! That is why it was posted!:thmbup:
Hi Yarnplayer! I couldn't agree more about the more techniques and ideas we share about tatting the better off the tatting community is as a whole. I know that the different ways that different tatters have expressed their thoughts on a particular technique through pictorials have provided the "Ah-ha" moment for me, too! You would be one of those people! :dothewave:
Hi Jane! Thank you so much for posting the link to that! I will be posting about that page you made later on my blog! I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into your technique pages! I've said it before and I'll say it again...You are a jewel in the tatting community's crown! :thankyou:
