As this week seems to be turning into crochet week on my blog after the last two posts, I thought that I would continue with that today.
I am still trying to work my way through a large stash of yarn that I was given. You can read about it here. So I made another basket. This one is better than the first one. It is worked with four strands of 4ply yarn at once, so it is much stiffer. It is also quite versatile. It can either be folded halfway down.
Or all the way down.
Or not at all!
It just depends on how you want it to look!
The finished piece is about 9 inches across and probably about 7 inches tall. I much prefer it to the "bag" basket that I made before and I will be keeping this one for sure.
UPDATED 12/4/15 - see this post for more details on basket making.
Even after all of that though, there is still yarn left. So I am working on a little something - to my own design - it is still in the working stage right now, but if it works out I will share more with you. If you never see it again, you will know that it wasn't meant to be!
Once all of this yarn is done I really must get back to my quilt!
One other thing I hope that you will allow me to share with you today. My bloggy friend Beth From The Whimsical Dowager is selling off all of her papercrafting supplies. She is moving on to working more with yarny things and needs the space to set up her loom so that she can do some weaving. Beth has listed lots of her things in her Etsy shop, and is listing more all the time. So if you are in the market for some new craft supplies and wish to support a fellow crafter and blogger move on with their crafting, pop by Beth's shop and see what she has to offer. Beth really is a lovely person!
Thank you for allowing me this little plug for a friend!
As I write this it is sunny here, but we are forecast rain for later I think. I hope that it is sunny with you wherever you are!
