Re: Tension question
I just read you question at ravelry too! I love your ravatar! (and your screen name here, and I had a glimpse of your blog and loved the attitude!)
So, welcome to InTatters! I am answering here b/c I thing the brainstorming will be livelier here than there :-)
I can't think of a video to show specially what you want, but I am not sure that is the best way to improve your tension. I think your tension will improve once you find "your rythm" for moving the shuttle - once you get more "fluent", so to speak, you will automatically have more consistent tension - and then, you can begin to tweak it.
I think one thing to keep in mind is that the tension in tatting is determined *after the flip*, ie. you do not need t have a consistent tension in your thread as you hold it, b/c you will be relaxing it and making it tense with each stitch! What you do have keep in mind is that once the stitch is formed, it should not change (PattyD told me something like "make the stitch where you want it to live" when I was starting and it was an a-ha moment for me). So, be careful after each stitch, if they are too loose, they won't change afterwards!
Hm, I am afraid I am rambling... hope that helps a bit!
