A friend has kindly reminded me that I have not updated my blog in a long time and wondered if I was okay. I am still coughing a lot and Shizuku is still "snarking", but my grown children seem to have recovered from the "bug" nicely. Thanks be to God. Last weekend, a friend of my daughters was kind enough to help me to make the above basket. It is from a kit by Commonwealth Mfg Co and I think is called "Gran's Cotton Basket". It isn't cotton though. It's reed. I had fun making this basket, my first attempt. My thanks to my daughter's friend for her help and advice! The basket is round, and is approx. 9 inches wide by 8 inches tall. I will keep yarn balls in it, or maybe a sock in progress. I have one more basket kit to make. It was a find at the Goodwill Store, and is by the same company and is called "Krista's Oval Basket". It is much more complicated. I also have finished a stripey pair of socks, in Fall colors, but gave them away before I took a photo. (oops) Have a blessed day!
