Single shuttle split ring or plain, old, ordinary split ring. Hmmm what will it be?
Before tackling the Dragon pattern by AnneB, I figured I had better practice the SSSR, which I always forget how to tat. I suppose I never really use it much. Sort of like the split chain, which I did use on the last snowflake.
However, this time I suddenly realized the split chain no longer terrifies me! I have made finally, finally befriended it. I could not even find it in the photo when I looked at the post of that snowflake! Yah!
Alas, no such good feeling exists yet between me and the SSSR. I can tat them, but I am not comfortable with them, so I went with the SR.
In this pattern, you are instructed to use two shuttles anyway, after the initial one for the tail, so it makes sense to me to just start off with the two. Points for giving it a good shot, though!
Don't you just love that DMC #80 Red for a dragon? I think it is the perfect thread for a small version of one member Anne B's illustrious Dragon Den.
