Netting Without a Mesh Stick

Most of the time when you net, a mesh stick is used to create uniform-sized meshes.  There are a few times, though, when the mesh stick needs to be discarded, eliminated, not used.  This technique is one of the skills taught in "Netting, More or Less," the class I'm currently preparing.

On Rita's Netting Nook I have a short video which discusses when I don't use a mesh stick.

Netting Knots: The Same or Not?

A few weeks ago I was asked if the structure of the netting knot remained the same, no matter what it was called or which method was used to tie it.

I figured the best way to answer that question would be by video so you could see the examples and come to your own conclusion.

Come on over to Rita's Netting Nook and see what your answer might be.

Naming a Netting Stitch

Where do you go when you want to know the name of a netting stitch?

The last few weeks I have shown you a variety of stitches that use increases, decreases, or a combination of both.  The names used in those videos are the names by which I know the stitches.

Finding the name of a netting stitch used to be quite a problem for me.  The video that recaps my experience in finding the names of netting stitches is located on Nook News.  Come on over at take a look.

More Netting Stitches

If the tornado's destructive path had been about a mile further north on Wednesday, this blog may not have been sent.  However, since it did not, you get this entry.

The last couple of weeks I have shown you some netting increase and decrease stitches.  What happens if you put an increase stitch and a decrease stitch together?

Come on over to Rita's Netting Nook and take a look at the video posted on Nook News to find the answer.
