Adele Bruno gave us a shamrock string to use and challenged us to use Lucky by Bruno, Cayke by Rose Brown and Rixty (z). Because it's Rick Thomas' birthday, I added some Rick's Paradox. Follow It's a String Thing challenges here.
Adele Bruno is celebrating Pi day. Her string resembled the Pi symbol. In addition to the 3 tangles she challenged us to use, Pokeroot, Wacho and W2, I used Siri by Simone Menzell. Check out It's a String Thing Challenge here.
It's a String Thing Challege is to use "ribbon" patterns. Suggested patterns:
Flec by Ragged Ray
Wibble by Shawna Martin and
Edgar by Jody Genovese, CZT
I added St-rap by Pam Lee, Antique by Kathy Barringer, Betweed and Printemps both (z(r)) and something else I don't have a name for.
Thanks Adele. Learn more about IAST here.
Adele Bruno challenged us to use a heart-shaped string, with Caught by Christene Reyes and Zenith (Zentangle (R)). I wasn't feeling very sentimental so I went with a little bit of steampunk. To learn more about It's a String Thing Challenge, visit here.
To celebrate National Noodle Day (always a big holiday at my house - not) Adele Bruno devised a challenge that starts with tangle pattern 113 (tanglepatterns.com) and any or all of these patterns.
Hollibaugh by CZT Molly Hollibaugh - our noodles!
2-n-5 CZT® Anita Roby-Lavery - a grid based pattern for the rest of the pasta
Pots-n-pans by Sayantika Ray - we need something to cook it all in :)
Thanks Adele. It was fun to do.

I couldn't have picked a better challenge! In her "It's a String Thing Challenge" #111, Adele Bruno challenges us to draw 1 particular pattern (Hamail by Tina Hunziker) and add 1 of our favorite tangles, and add 1 original string for the favorite pattern if needed.
I love love love Hamail and lately I've gone crazy over Mooka. They play well together and look...a string! 3 of them in fact hanging from a Mooka!
Also -- I think watching some shading youtube videos is helping. I like the dimensionality I was able to achieve on Hamail.
So much fun - thank you Adele.
Over at "It's a String Thing Challenge" Adele Bruno has tapped the talents of one of her friends, CZT Joan Delony. String 108 (tanglepatterns.com) was created by Delony and Adele asked us to feature four of Delony's favorite tangles:
Cubine and Printemps by Maria Thomas
Lanie by Adele herself and
Chemystery by MaryAnn Scheblein-Dawson.
All I can say is Adele has talented friends and Delony has great taste. I love all these patterns, even though I didn't find a way to work in Printemps.
When I finished, I decided it looked too dull and added a bit of color. Now it's a happy tile!
In honor of the 76th birthday of Wizard of Oz's U.S. debut, Adele Bruno urges us to follow the yellow brick road err....make that String 111. Featured tangle patterns are
Zenith by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas
Pixioze by CZT Margaret Bremner and
Ann by Adele herself.
Also added Beadlines by Bremner
