"It's a String Thing" #80

It's Tuesday, your good news day and we are now in the 80's!

We begin this week with TanglePatterns String 080 by CZT Jane Dickinson ~

Then we will use just two patterns this week.  It will give us time to really get to know them:

Kozy by Marieke van Nimwegen
Inaura by CZT Bunny Wright

The first is the newest tangle posted on TanglePatterns - Kozy by Marieke van Nimwegen.
The name drew me to the tangle (pun intended :) with winter's hold on so much of our world.
Though I must admit at first glance Kozy reminded me of many other tangles, after a study of Marieke's step out, I have become a fan.

The second pattern, Inaura, is one of those magical ones that begins very simply and with aura and shading unfolds as only a classic tangle can.

Step outs for the patterns can be found by clicking their names above, or by visiting TanglePatterns.

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!  
Keep in mind that the string line is merely a suggestion, let the tangles lead you.

Here are the (Not so) Official Guidelines: 
* Challenges are posted on Tuesdays.
*Use the string posted for the week and patterns that begin or contain the letter(s) indicated
* Submit a photo of your tile saved as jpg or scan your tile (300 dpi or higher) and save as a jpg
*Email your jpg file as an attachment to - brunoadelem@gmail.com
*Entries are to be submitted by Saturday evenings.

PLEASE NOTE: It is not necessary for you to have a blog or website to participate.

If you do have a blog or website, I will add a link upon request.  
Please include the site specific URL. 

I look forward to your emails.


  1. I can't seem to get Kozy at all..frustrating!

    1. Observing what how other tanglers use Kozy may be helpful - check back on Monday for the results. Let me know if I can answer a specific question. I'd be happy to help.

    2. I have tried and tried but as my husband said..and I agree with him..my Kozy looks like a nest of Larvae..!!..not pleasant at all :-)

    3. I can send you a image if you like?!

    4. Yes, send it to the email for the challenges - brunoadelem@gmail.com - and I'll see what I can suggest.
