I think I should have used the catch-up week strings last week. This week’s tangles, although some are very similar which I will get to in a moment, were mostly ones for which I didn’t have step-outs done already. Alice puts up the new week’s tangles and string on Saturday, so even if I did one every day, I wouldn’t have all of them done by Tuesday night to write up my blog post.
So I think next week I may do the string catch-up week and share that here next week, so that I just get in the habit of tangling every day. We shall see.
This week’s tangles are Tagh, Ibex, Facade, Drupe, Dyon, Xircus, and Fracas. I’ve tangled Tagh before but didn’t make a step-out for it.
Then comes Drupe. This is the one that I did have drawn already and I haven’t scanned it or taken a picture of it though . . . sorry about that. But here is a link to the step-out online.
Then there is Dyon which is so similar to Drupe. It seems that the only difference is the lack of some straight lines in each section between the arched lines.Then there is Fracas which uses the same combined x and + as the base that both Drupe and Dyon uses. The lines on each section for this one are arced the opposite way from the previous tangles and then blacken every other band.
Then the last one is Xircus which I’d never heard of before but I really like it. Because it has a lot of repetitive lines.
Here’s my tile before I did the shading.
I chose to put one section of each of those four similar tangles on the bottom left. I also did some extra shading on the spirals of Ibex. I like how the tile ended up. I think I enjoy Xircus more than the other similar tangles.
Thanks for stopping by. Let me know which is your favorite of the four (Drupe, Dyon, Fracas, or Xircus) tangles, down in the comments.
Until next time, God bless,
