Basket Case

I’ve had a bit of an obsession with baskets and bowls lately.  I think it started with discovering Crayon Chick and then I stumbled across the beautiful work of Wic & Folk at the Red Hill market.  Very inspired by their gorgeous baskets and amazed to finally find some BIG knitting needles.  I had just that week sent my hubby to the shed with a couple of pieces of large dowel to magic into needles for me (very handy man my hubby – he did a lovely job).  Photos of said needles and their handywork coming soon.

But I digress.  Back to baskets.  I decided to try my hand at crochet (knot studio style).  I have to say I was quite pleased with the outcome (hubby asked what it’s for – he’s a practical man, as well as handy, my hubby).
