Further studies of the SSSR

Here you are. Another page on the SSSR - this time it's the one I've been talking about where you can join to other elements.

I'm still fascinated by the different effects that the SSSR can give in my older patterns!! Little things please little minds!!!

When I first did the dolphin I realised that it could only be done in one colour unless you made the centre SR's in one colour (2 shuttles for first few SR's) and then took one of those shuttles out and added in another.

This is the result using just 3 SSSR's.

As the song/saying says 'what a difference a SSSR makes'. No, that's not quite right - should be 'what a difference a day makes'!!!!

THat is really cool that you are busy exploring all the fabulous aspects of that SSSR and showing us the results! :)
Thank you for sharing all your fabulous tatting adventures with the rest of us!

That is indeed clever, Jane! I'm going to have to give that a spin.

You smarty pants!

What would we do without you? I learn more dropping into your blog than I do anywhere else. Thanks for all the instruction sheets and patterns, too.

Ooh, I have been wondering about SSSRs lately and am thrilled to see you cleverly refreshing your patterns with them. *blushes* I must confess that at first glance I mistook your cheery dolphin for a shark.

Hi Jane! Your experimentation with the SSSR almost makes me think working the thing on a regular basis is worth the hassle. I do like how the dolphin turned out using two colors. You could easily turn that into a swordfish!

Jane Eborall said...

Heck, Erin, I'm not smart!!! Others are smart and I'm just helping out here!!!!!
A shark and/or a swordfish? Makes me wonder if it's really a dolphin now!!!!

Miranda said...

Not smart??!!? I don't know anyone else with an extra brain cell, and you do so much with it! You design brilliant patterns, do fabulous write-ups on all the new techniques, and your blog always stimulates me.

BTW, for anyone trying this technique, I highly recommend practicing the join a few times on some scrap tatting before you do it "for real". If you don't get it right, it can be a pig to unpick. Ask me how I know. :)

Hmm. I'm thinking he looks like my Aunt Rachel.
