tangle gone amok
prepare for a tangle gone completely amok. this was in response to this week's "i am the diva challenge #325," from guest challenger Jessica Davies. click on that link to see what this tangle is SUPPOSED to look like. note: nothing like mine.
the challenge tangle is "pea-nuckle," one of my least favorites (sorry, molly!). rather than doing it in a solid block, i wondered what would happen if i 1) tried to bend it in a circle, 2) made the insides of the "peas" something other than straight lines, and 3) connected them to each other not using the usual straight lines. oh dear...
which begs the question, is this even the pea-nuckle tangle anymore? or just a hot mess?
i'm hoping i can use my current broken wrist as an excuse. though there's probably no excuse for this!

Maybe not very 'peanuckle-ish' but pretty and festive anyway!

Your peanuckle may not look like the rank and file but you know, this is what you drew because this is what you see in your mind. It may be different but it has its own qualities. The tile overall looks fun and festive. I do see the peanut shapes and they are connected with something artsy rather than the straight lines of the traditional Peanuckle.....you know what? It's still Peanuckle to you, so it IS Peanuckle.

ha ha, duane--the inside of my mind is a scary place indeed! but thanks. i just could not do pea-nukle as it was intended...don't like it enough.

What you drew is called Pea-Nutty and it is a tangelation of Pea-Nuckle according to a study made by the University of Gletanzen. So it is still with in the Pea-Nuckle family and it is certainly better than anything I came up with in the first 2 days of constant trying, playing and testing. In the end, though, I found an easier way to draw the darling tangle. ...and I, too, drew it in a circle.

"pea-nutty"--i love it! exactly right, and hilarious. i have to go back to the challenge page next and look at what others have done now (i try not to look--much--first). want to see what you did and especially the circular form. care to share the easier way to draw it? my wrist: omg, the itching is making me crazy. today i go to see the doctor and may come away with a slightly smaller cast. this one goes up over my elbow. itch, itch, itch. ye gods. thanks for asking.

Hahaha! The good news: you'll survive. Tell me if you got the "oval approach", else I will explain in a drawing hoping Miss Molly will look the other way.

susie, will do. too much scheduled today to get to try it. hope to try tomorrow! have a new cast shorter and lighter. hope that helps.

PS: I updated my webpage with the oval steps...just in case someone wants to give it a go.

I just love seeing someone try to push a tangle out of the original step-outs. That;s being creative! Fantastic tile!
