SR and SCMR & There Goes My Tatting Time

I did this post last Sunday but because I had a non-tatting related item in it, I debated over if I should actually post it. Then I decided I was going to revamp it and never did. Since I have a horrible cold and I didn't do much tatting this week, I'm going to post last week's in it's original form. I hope it makes you smile.

Happy Tatting and Stay Well!

It really didn't take me long to figure out the SR (split ring) but it took considerable time to learn the SCMR (self closing mock ring.) What happened was I was trying to actually make a ring rather than have the second shuttle be the core of the SCMR.

Once I realized SCMR isn't a ring but a mock ring it was quite easy. I hope to have it finished in time to post next week.

Non-Tatting related, but a funny story.

My avid body building - every day gym going husband called me at work last week to tell me he got me a present. A present, yeah!, what is it? "A gym membership." How thoughtful! *sigh* Okay so I say "I'm game to a trial membership." To which he replied "I got you a year membership, we have alot to do and a little time to do it in."

"WE" ?!?!?! Wonder who "we" is!

(January 2009 we will celebrate our 25th Anni. For almost 2 years now we have been planning a cruise for Jan 09 with our very good friends, Kris and Nicole, who will celebrate their 10th Anni around the same time. )

Isn't he the greatest? Now mind you I was furious at the time, hung up on him in fact, but I know he loves me and since he isn't very romantic, this is his way of saying that he wants me to be healthy and grow old with him.

And I know that I need to do this for myself, so I started a week ago today. 4 times a week, just cardio for now, a hour and a half a day. Today was the first day of week #2, weigh in day, the first day of the new week, I lost 5 lbs! I rush to tell DH "5 lbs!" to which he replys "I told you the first few would come right off, don't get over confident." Feel the love?? :-)

Does anyone know if it's possible to tat while on a treadmill?

Happy Tatting,

Congratulations on learning the self-closing mock ring! I have the book, but haven't tried the technique yet. Tatting on the treadmill? I think I could as long as no one expected me to walk!

I would try knitting on the treadmill, it's harder to drop stitches.

Good for you and your hubby! I suppose you could tat while excercising but if I tried I would make way too many mistakes! LOL

You can tat on a treadmill as long as you aren't running. If you can walk and tat you can use the treadmill and tat. I did it while at the physiotherapy clinic only because 20 minutes on a treadmill going nowhere seemed such a waste of time. I don't think I could run and tat though. Tatting while running would have required greater balance and concentration than I possess.

I am wondering if the pattern you are asking about is one of Mark Myers. You could ask him. It looks familar to me.

Bonnie did you get the information on the round robin? My email to you has bounced.
