Since I have been tatting at work, a few friends/coworkers was interested to learn tatting. I want to hit the iron while the iron is hot so to speak, I downloaded some instruction online and provided them size 10 threads I first bought couple years ago at my own beginning.
My first pupil was able to flip with the help of using hemp twine and has since completed a butterfly and a flower pattern. Now she just have to move toward smaller threads. No pushing from me, she will make the change I say when she is ready.
My second pupil told me yesterday that she has finally figure out the flip and was able to do complete a little project of a ring with 4ds p 4ds p 4ds p 4ds p 4ds. Shes was excited and when she saw our friend with the butterfly she announced that she also want to tat a butterfly.
Since she only knows rings, I found a really simple butterfly pattern online today that uses only rings.
This is so great to be able to convert friends to tatting buddies......
