I have been pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of Real Americans on my travels. I love to stumble across things, talking to old men in diners, looking for cheap breakfasts in small town cafes, eating local. I have nothing but good stories of the people and experiences that I have had in my tatting and motorcycling travels. It turns out that a woman traveling alone on a motorcycle can be a good way to get conversations started.
I really am 'my father's daughter' in that I love to talk to people. This is me on one of my motorcycle adventures with my 'Home' aka tent and my motorcycle. My goal in life is to travel and write it off as a business expense. Traveling by way of my motorcycle is my favorite way to spend my travel time. Interlocking rings are very simple to do Interlocking Rings are 'Ring-Only' patterns no chains between ring elements. The space of bare thread between the rings is important to the visual appearance of the finished piece. The bare thread between rings is actually hidden in the piece in the way that the rings stack up.
If in doubt, err of the side of too big of a space of bare thread between rings. It seems to me that judging how big of a space of bare thread between interlocking ring is no different than judging size in any other ring-only pattern.
I have often stated that judging how big of a space of bare thread between ring-only patterns is THE most difficult aspect of tatting! Use of chains that have been defined for the tatter by the pattern designer alleviate this judgement for the tatter. We just follow the ring-chain pattern and it comes out right. Interlocking Rings are innately not stable. When tatted properly shuttle dropped through ring before closing it; appropriate space of bare thread between rings the final effect will appear to be a bunch of tatted rings that do not look like anything you expected. You must coax them into position by twisting the group so that they lay in the same plane.
The bare threads between the rings should be hidden to the back of the work, behind the rings. Then once they are in position and look like 'interlocking rings' you must pin them or sew them to a backing to keep them in place. I'm not sure if starching them stiffly will get them the stability needed for them to stay in place.

When I started buying technique books, I was hooked on learning how to manipulate the basics of tatting to create tatting that was far from 'basic'.
I am not one of those tattooed, hard-core types! At some point I got the weird idea of putting my Tatting Technique Junkie skills to a test by creating a Tatted Motorcycle. I started with a picture of a motorcycle that I liked a Triumph and then started creating tatted 'parts'.
I did tat each part separately and combined them together onto a piece of linen cloth, pulling the thread ends to the back of the cloth to finish it. The technique I used for the seat I believe to be original.
