Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

FIVE BEAT WEAVE! (forwards)
and kind of backwards, except I'm not wholly convinced that I've actually got it on the left side as the right side version seems to do more twisting, but same number of spins.




Turns out I'm doing some kinda 4 beat weave for the reverse.. which is definitely not what I was trying to do! Bah. Hope this means I'll be able to push it a bit further..

Posted:woo, i'd been struggling with the reverse TTN loads today, still can't really do it.

I just tried the butterfly weave after reading a thread on it and got it working in all of about 2 minutes smile

I did practice butterfly turns lots recently or I doubt it would have been so fast.

Posted:Got reverse TTN sorted properly the day after I worked out the butterfly weave, lol. got it at least partly isolated now too.

I've *finally* been able to do a 180 turn from BTB rev weave to BTB forward weave. I just can't turn back again yet arg. BTB forward wave is such a pain, it's so much more unnatural feeling than anything else I've done for some reason.. BTB weave turns are also the most exhausting (and painful!*) thing to practice i've found so far smile

(*clocked myself square on the nose for the first time, lol)

Posted:Yakumo, just you wait.



I'm finally starting to get the reverse five-beat weave. I'll be able to get it for two minutes, then it'll fall apart on me. But the getting it for the two minutes is a great improvement.

Posted:lot's of thread the needle tricks. split time TTN (weeks ago) reverse split time TTN (more recently) and I've been learning to throw isolations into them. so ummm.... isolated split time thread the needle weave?

I'll get there too late if I shorten my stride, I'll get there too soon if I find me a ride, I'll never move forward if I try to hide this path that I've troden one step at a time.

yeah, corscrew in the HoP lessons is wide appart, take that , do it with your hands clost together all the time, as she does when she does it in front of her, and you're basically doing a horizontal 3 beat weave.

next add 2 beats smile
