After weeks of celebrating one thing or another, let us take a step back to the basics of the method we all adore: simple pen, pencil, and paper.
We begin with this string ~
|IAST #235 String by Adele Bruno, CZT|
When I put pen to paper to draw this string, I thought of Maria Thomas. It looks like something she might come up with and tangle beautifully, doesn't it?
Since we are returning to our roots, let's use a few of Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas' tangles that many of us learned in our early tangling days ~
There are many updated versions of this simple tangle - keep it as simple or complex as your mood strikes.
Speaking of simple or complex - the same applies to this beloved tangle.

Did you know that fescue is a type of grass? Isn't that interesting?
As with all our IAST adventures, pencil in the string keeping in mind that it is a suggestion, let the tangles lead the way, and use as many or as few as you wish.
