yarn basket show off


Another basket, this one is called the "lots of yarn" basket. I see why; a basket any knitter might like to own. I have already filled it with my knitting projects and set it by a chair in the sun room.

I make baskets simply because I like baskets, after all, they are extremely functional.  Enjoying the actual basket making process is low on the list on crafts I like to do, however. But an evening with ladies to chat and laugh with and then going home with a finished basket makes for a warmly wonderful evening.

I *love* a good basket and always have my eyes peeled for good ones. Love this one, and especially the little feet. Very cute.

That is a very lovely and functional basket! I made a few baskets years ago...one broke and got ruined but I still have and use the other one. An aunt helped me make them. It would be fun to make some more, but i would definitely need instruction. How nice you were able to do that in a class.
