Tangled Tuesday No. 69

It seems like it’s been a rather quiet week in the world of tangling – nevertheless, I do have a few goodies to share with you in today’s Tangled Tuesday post, which I hope you’ll enjoy!

New Tangles

This week I learned Pop-Cloud, Viaduct, Phicops, Lilypads, Pineple, and Pea-nuckle, all from TanglePatterns.com.


I started out with Diane & Carolien’s Weekly Challenge #33: Tangle with B-E-X, choosing the tangles BrrrSt, Eddyper, and Xmas-red. All three patterns were ones I’d previously learned but had not yet had a chance to use in a finished project, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to do so.

Next was The Diva’s Challenge #245, which this week was all about getting back to basics with the pattern Hollibaugh. Just to be different I went with curved rather than straight lines, and I quite like the effect they give.

Finally I completed joey’s weekly tangle challenge #88, which was to use Yuma in a monotangle. I can’t say this is one of my most favourite tangle patterns – I like the way others’ tiles turn out, but for some reason I can never seem to get the hang of it for myself.

Now on to a new week of tangling!
