Starting here.

When I first starting tangling, I didn’t have too many problems with patterns that had straight lines. But circles were really difficult for me. It is difficult, almost impossible for me to write in cursive, and I suppose there are similar difficulties with drawing circles in many ways.

So, I figured I would start out really big. My thinking was I could do these, starting from the center, and carefully go round and round, rotating my paper, and it should work.

I think this isn’t too bad, all things considered! This is from July, 2010!

I will continue to post these really old examples so you can see that, just like everyone else, it has taken some practice to get to where I am today. Don’t give up, or think you can’t do this! You CAN! Just do it!
