Day 3 from Anastasija

Today I'm going to show you the explanation that Anastasija sent me.  Well you should've seen it yesterday but I forgot to schedule it as I was in a hurry to get out of the house!!!  

Can you see the progression?  Very interesting.

The thread she has used here looks very slippery to me and would be a challenge on it's own.  I'm hoping to try this myself this evening.

I was thoroughly perplexed until I realized that the chains between the repeats are pearl tatting-- the shininess of the thread makes it hard to see that in the photo. So she's working with three threads, and using the half-moon SSSR's to advance the third thread around the SCMR, while the other two threads make the chain around the the SCMR and half-moon SSSR's. Once she gets all three threads to the same place, she does another length of pearl tatting to move to the next repeat. Beautiful and brilliant!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
