"It's a String Thing" #280

It is Tuesday, your good news day!

While this is a post to introduce the next IAST, the tiles for #279 will be posted on Thursday, February 14, for Valentine's Day.  (I can still add more tiles if you haven't emailed yours yet.)

As we continue on this tangled journey with gratitude for the time together, we begin with this string ~

IAST #280 String by Adele Bruno, CZT

The tangles we will use include ~

Mi2 by Mimi Lempart, CZT
This is one pattern that can be challenging to draw.  Proof of that are the two additional links included in the TanglePatterns write up.  One is by Rick Roberts and the other is an updated one by Mimi.

I am doubly excited about including this pattern because I have developed Tips for Tangling Mi2 that are sure to make it a pleasure to tangle - no need for planning out shapes or lines, just pure ease in achieving the desired look of this seemingly intricate pattern.  Check tomorrow's post for details!

Cat-kin  by Mimi Lempart, CZT
By pure happenstance I selected a second tangle by Mimi.  It has a beautifully organic nature and can be delicate or bold.

Opus by Maria Thomas
This tangle is a natural accompaniment to Mi2.  The lines from one tangle can flow into another.

There will be a delay in the deadline as I will be off enjoying "Gramma time" again and away from my computer.
Please send in your tiles by Saturday, February 23.  That gives us plenty of time to explore these tangles.

To recap, look for posts on ~
