Thank you for the lovely comments on the scarf! My brother in law seems to like it too. (He’d better like it! )
Here’s something else I’ve been up to…
The inspiration for this basket came from the cover of this issue of Cotton Time (the cute basket at bottom left corner, only I made mine bigger) and this fabric basket from the Crafter’s Companion book. I’m so very happy with this, it’s like a combination of my favourite fabrics of the moment.
Dimensions: 11 inches tall, 10 inches diameter. It’s big enough to carry all my knitting WIPs (well, the ones in active rotation anyway), so that they’re not all over the living room. Hubby is also pleased with this basket, he’s particularly enthusiastic about being able to find a place to sit again
Sides and bottom fortified by Timtex. No more floppy sides this time!
It has a drawstring top…
… and lots of pockets on the inside. For needles, notions, etc.
