I admit that when I first saw this tangle I was not smitten. It looked a bit boring. Thank goodness for the Diva's challenges is all I can say! I've become somewhat of a fan of IX! I like it, not all alone, but with some other IXes. Tipple seems to be a lovely roundy counterpoint to IX's long straight lines.

I think that what I particularly like about IX is that it's necessarily large. It fills a space with simple lines. I love intricate detail so much that I often got caught up in it. Can't do that with IX.
Then I tried it on one of the 'tree' tiles I'm working on for a larger project!
