I have been snowed in this week, so I have been doing some tiding up of my studio as well as lots of spinning!! I really wanted some baskets in my studio, so decided to make them myself. I found a really good tutorial through Ravelry ( the link is below - she does say to use cotton, but wool is perfect also),
I spun a thick single, using 4 colours of green from the latest Inspirational Spinning Box, and chain plyed it for a nice chunky yarn. The Fibre was Merino for two of the colours and Corriedale for the other 2 colours. And crochet into the basket, using a No.8 hook, and added the handles also. I was very surprised how easy it was to do and how it stands up so well. I shall definitely be making some more.
