There's one thing that's guaranteed to drive me bonkers. Well, more bonkers than I usually am!!!
One of those things is the re-naming of perfectly fine tatting terms. After all a ring is a ring, a chain is a chain and a split ring is a split ring etc. BUT why do people go out of their way to confuse this old git by calling a ring on a chain a 'thrown ring'.
For goodness sakes I know we've all wanted (and probably have) thrown a shuttle at the wall, floor etc but we don't and can't throw rings!!! They're attached.
I know what other people think 'thrown rings' are but to me they are simply rings on chains. They've always been called that and that's one of the reasons I still call mine - rings on chains or RoCh.
To me a thrown ring is this. Bina came up with this many years ago in 2008 and called it a loop tatted ring. I always think of a thrown ring as this. I did draw this out for my own benefit a few years ago and this is the link to my page.
