This "rope trick" is something I'm going to show my students at tatting class. It may help the beginners to understand that the tatting knot slides over a core, that the roles of "knot" and "core" can change, and prepare them for the concept of the "flip".
I hope the LBS Spring Retreat students will like what they are getting in their kits. (Anyhow, it's what they're getting, regardless - LOL.) I put in a 2-pack of tatting shuttles, 2 colors of heavy size 3 practice thread, some white cordonnet size 10, some HDT size 10, a size 12 crochet hook, a size 16 crochet hook, a floss threader, an embroidery needle, and enough beads and findings to complete 2 "Lacy Treasure" pendants, along with the pattern. I'll bring along a variety of tatting books and samples of my own tatting for them to see as well.
