"It's a String Thing" #224

Welcome back and a very Happy New Year to everyone!

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

This new year promises to be one full of tangled delights, especially if you keep up with our weekly adventures.
Just think of the countless patterns to learn, others to be reacquainted with - not to mention the inspiration from other artists around the world and the positively encouraging community to share it all with!

Let's begin 2018 with this '18 string ~

IAST #224 String by Adele Bruno, CZT

The tangles we will use include two that helped to wrap up the old year ~

Ever a fan of Pokeroot and Pokeleaf, I find that this new tangle fills a string space in a similar manner with even more magic!

Slowpoke by Chris Letourneau, CZT
This tangle has lovely scrolls and unfolds beautifully - be sure to read Chris' instructions that accompany her step out.

The string is merely a suggestion, let the tangles lead the way.
