Joey's Weekly Challenge: P is for Pea-Knuckle

When I read Joey's challenge for this week, I groaned! (I think I heard others groaning, too!) I could not see how this tangle worked when we learned it in class and I was even tempted to sit it out, since I was convinced I could never learn it, much less see a place to use it. (Apologies to Molly!) I reviewed my notes, reviewed the step-outs, did a practice run, grabbed a color tile to make up for my deficits and a sepia pen. As I worked, I got into a rhythm and noticed that I was connecting the tip of the hook to the middle of the S to make the two outer connecting lines--and then filling in with two more lines. This helped me a lot by giving me a shape to fill in. (It was harder when I was just drawing lines to connect the esses.) 

This one just makes me smile. I hope you enjoy it, too!


  1. Oh I love the strings on the bottom! And I'm going to try the lines like you have done with open spaces, that looks fantastic!

  2. That looks really good, I love the strawberry wash. I like the frayed rug ends and the little curls at the top

  3. Fantastic tile Jennifer! I was definitely amongst the group of groaners when this appeared on Monday. I love the stringy bits hanging off the bottom, I may have to borrow that for my next attempt at practicing this. I think I'm getting the hang of it. I really love the color. Well done!

    1. Thanks, Michele! My strings. Your pens. What else will we think of?

  4. Oh, I wish I'd read your notes before drawing mine! But I never peek. I might have to go back and give mine another try. Thanks for sharing and congrats on a very nicely done piece.


I appreciate your comments and suggestions!
