rings for RPL / battenberg lace / irish crochet

Romanian point lace, battenberg (battenburg) lace and Irish crochet lace all traditionally use rings in the lace. I am going to show a few ways of making these rings. There are 5 examples in this tutorial. This will help those in the Jan 2012 RPLA on Ravelry and of course any one else who wants to learn this like those in the flickr group. I will have another tutorial later with 2 more ways of making rings

video on Oya

Found a video on Oya, not in English but very good.  Some day I will find some one local who can speak English and show me this as I know I miss some things like the type of thread and things of that sort in the video.  Her speed is amazing there is a woman who has made a ton of Oya in her life.

RPL cord made by my oldest daughter

My oldest daughter has taken on the challenge to make me some cord. This is what she has made in the last few days working on this. May not look like much to most people but that is 4 1/2 yards pretty good amount I would say. It was just a small ball of size 10 thread I handed her. She asked for more when she finished this so now I have given her a humongous ball of cream size 10 thread. I will see how far she get on this hopefully she won't burn out and will be able to help me make cord.
