    net making
    At one of my net making demonstrations years ago a spectator who was a tatting expert suggested this method. It eliminates the need to make a bight to the left of the loop you are tying into. This results in a increase in the speed of the netting process.
    Over time I have found that it is easier to teach (and learn) net making by using this method.

    That method sure looks like it takes out most of the fussing I do when net making. Thanks for the tip, I'll try it out today.

    Net making is a skill I have yet to try my hand at. This method looks like a good way to start off!

    I thank you for posting this. Hopefully, I can remember it next time I make one.
