a nice little knitted basket


The homestretch of the soft basket. About 70 degrees outside, crickets and birds singing, golden leaves a'swirling, the dogs rumbling (really just playing but we call it rumbling), and a cup of tea. It was something.


A nice little basket. This yarn, Blue Sky Alpacas worsted cotton, is such a pleasure to knit, I'm sort of sad to be finished. But only sad until I start thinking about my next knitting project, and then it's back to happy again. Just enough mania to keep things interesting, you know.

Deanna, thanks. You're right, I changed the color a tad and widened the main column a little! I can never get the photos as big as I'd like them though without totally changing my template. But hey, it's free.

Happy, you'll enjoy making this!

Nancy, it seems to be a week of green. For you, too, as I recall! Funny because everything outside is changing from green. Maybe that's why we're attracted to it. Course where you live, it probably stays green?

Thanks, Deb -- it is wonderful yarn, isn't it? Have 2 more skeins for more baskets, different colors -- they were a gift, I wouldn't have spent the $$ on such nice yarn for baskets probably, I'm too cheap!
