Chebucto and Copada

I just returned from two weeks vacation and noticed a blog post that made me exclaim, "Hey! Somebody used my tangles!" That's always cool.

Then I realized that it was a response to the Diva's challenge this week. Wowee! Do a duo-tangle using two of my tangles. It's the first time ever that a duo-tangle challenge is not official tangles. What an honor!

Here's my first response to this challenge. I've never done Copada like this before - it just happened - but I quite like the series of wavy lines; it's a little like wood grain. Trying to run Chebucto off into nothingness was quite a challenge. I don't think I'd recommend it!

I wondered what these two tangles would look like running into and through each other, so I did a very simple string (three lines in each direction) and tried to alternate the tangles. I'm quite pleased with this tile! I like the large white spaces.

Both of these tangles are trickier to organize around a corner or on a curve. That's probably true about most 'border' tangles. Here's a MINI-TUTORIAL about sending Chebucto around a corner.

  10. Congratulations for having your tangles featured in this week's challenge. I admit I struggled some, but I'm glad I didn't wait to look at your creative responses to the challenge before tackling it on my own. Because that would be like cheating, right? ;-)

  18. I think I like the first one the best. Just seems to have a nice flow. Like your info on doing the corners with Chebucto. I was trying to do it in a circle but was not successful in pulling it off. Saw a couple of others posted that were.
