without a twist ....

... making a final join Such improved rings of tatting with the final join NOT TWISTED.

I made a few practice pieces:
and with the help of Ann's post
Tatting - twisted picot join tutorial
from her
Nifty Needle blog

I think I've got it!

Thx Ann for visiting my blog,
taking the time to comment & provide such a helpful link ...
You rock!
So helpful to me & I appreciate it so much!

I cannot get over the difference it makes to get it RIGHT

OK, moving along to the next tatting skill / challenge / pattern ....

YEA!!!! I'm excited for you! Getting the final join figured out opened up so many more tatting possibilities for me - it's pretty frustrating to tat your little heart out on a motif and have the final join go wrong.


Do we get to vote on your next skill to tackle? :)
Because if we do, I'm voting for split rings - talk about possibilities... And Jon has a WONDERFUL tutorial right here:

Happy tatting!

Lelia, congratulations on conquering the twisted join. Yes, that is the first obstacle that every tatter has to go over. Your one-shuttle flowers are all so neat, and lovely threads that you used for them.

Thank you Ann for the shout out to my split ring tutorial.
