Challenge #139 "8s Parte Dos"

It's UMT (use my tangle) time at the DIVA'S this week. The tangle is "8s Parte Dos" by Jane Eileen. 

 I think Laura sums it up best when she says:

This is very reminiscent of W2, Huggins and Mi2 - they're all in a similar tangle 'family' if you will.

This tangle requires a bit more focus, and attention to detail - but it is WELL worth the effort!! I think the trick is to carefully line up your dots.

While I have W2, Huggins, and Mi2 down pat, it's going to take some practice to get 8s Parte Dos down.  Lots of concentration with this tangle, but it will be fun playing with it!  I love these tangles that go in, out, and under!  

Thanks for the great tangle, Jane Eileen

  1. Very nice use of 8s. I agree that it was a bit of a challenge, but that's what is was supposed to be, I guess. I'm glad I worked on it. Some tangles do take time to become comfortable "go to" patterns and, you are right, this one is worth the effort. Beautiful tile!

  6. Like how you nestled 8s between Zander and Meer. Also like the ring effect you created.
