Re: another newbie question concerns splicing/tieing string when you run out
I do nearly the same thing, except I hide the old thread end in the ring, then the ring tail in the next chain. Or you can hide the ring end in the ring, snug the chain thread in the base of the ring, and hide the end in the chain. Either way will avoid having too much bulk in any one element. This assumes starting with a ring. However, the first video shows starting with a chain. I'll always do my best to begin with a ring so that I can tat over tails for both ends. However, if I have to start with a chain, I'll tat over tails for one, then sew the other tail under the caps of the previous ring. Anything to avoid having too much bulk in one element.
