Diva challenge 326 - Don't fit in, n'zeppel





Guest blogger Elisa Murphy challenges us this week to reflect on the experience of not fitting in, using n'zeppel.  She reminds us of middle school, a classic time for not fitting in.  I remember spending a few weeks in 7th grade trying so hard to fit in and then giving it up forever as a lost cause.  I gradually built up my own group of friends who didn't care about fitting in, and I've been happily exploring the road less travelled by ever since.  N'zeppel is also probably my favorite tangle, certainly the one I'm most comfortable with that I turn to again and again.  So I tangled wonky n'zeppel into a round peg in a square hole (or is it a square peg in a round hole?) for my string.  I notice that my red accents are sloppy in places (I did the tile late last night), but that's OK, too -- no need to fit in with perfect tidiness.  This was fun, a lovely celebration of the joys of not fitting in!

  2. I've been trying to learn to "color outside the lines" for much of my life. Nice job interpreting this week's theme.

    1. Thanks, Suzanne. When Laura announced her summer vacation (this is my first year doing diva challenges), I didn't realize there'd be guest bloggers and more challenges. But the variety we've had so far has been really stimulating and fun.
