Diva Challenges 220 & 221

Diva Challenge #220 UMT: All Boxed Up three ways in a monotangle.

Last week the Diva challenged us to use Alice Hendon’s All Boxed Up tangle. I generally try to not be influenced by other entries in the challenges, but when I procrastinate I do run across some entries in my blog feed or in the various Facebook groups. Here I was influenced by Helen Williams’ freeform All Boxed Up and decided to layer it over Alice’s two different orientations as a sort of study of the pattern. I ended up adding a titch of tipple to cover an oops. There are no mistakes, right?

Between work and moving I can’t knit right now so I tangled during my SnB night on Monday. I ended up doing the this week’s Diva Challenge to create a tile inspired by Beads of Courage which you can read about on the Diva’s blog post.  I thought what goes with beads more than ribbon? Add in that in the Weekly Zentangle Tangle Video Facebook Group is focusing on Knase which immediately grabbed me as a nice pattern for a ribbon and so I combined the two.
