I was so excited about this Auraknot challenge that I decided to start a new blog specifically for posting challenge related tangles, rather than waiting and posting them on my writing blog. This way, I can post and link up anytime during the week AND not have to explain patterns or challenges since these posts will only be linked up to site specific challenges, so viewers will already understand what's going on each week (right?)
So, I was completely intimidated by Auraknot when Rick and Maria first posted this new tangle-it looked way too complicated for a novice like me to figure out and I was just going to skip the challenge altogether. Then...I took the time to watch their video demo of how Auraknot is done and Wow!! I got it!! There are so many possibilities for this tangle!! I can't wait to play, play, play with all that it can be....
But first, the Tangle Journal Prompt this week was Triangles, so I overlapped a couple triangles, saw a super star that would be perfect for Auraknot and away I went! The triangles got lost as I Auraknotted outside as well as on the inside and it all rather reminds me of Hibred? So this was two challenges in one:
Then!! As I pondered Auraknot, it occurred to me that Fengle would be an interesting outline to do a little knotting with and so came this:
