Hello, all! I just accomplished my first crochet challenge ever, and I am so very excited! It was a great project overall, although I accidentally made a small blunder in my yarn choice. This basket is made using the basket weave stitch, but it is hard to tell because my yarn colors are so bold. Oh, well. [You can find the pattern for this basket on my last All The Makings post here.]
I like the sturdiness, and I know the handles look rather thin, but by the time I was ready to make the handles, I was ready just to finish it! I’m thinking of designating this basket as my “WIP” basket, which translates to “work-in-progress,” for those of you unfamiliar with craft lingo. 🙂
I might even make the letters “WIP” to put on the side; that would be a neat addition, I think. As Christmas gets nearer and nearer, I’m trying to put together a list of what gifts I’ll be making for my family, so my next project will probably be one of those. I can’t say what that might be right at the moment, as I know my family reads this blog, and I want them to be surprised!
(I’m actually halfway participating in the Mystery Adventure Scarf KAL & CAL over at Yarnspirations; I say halfway because I’m not actually using Caron yarn, and I haven’t been closely following the clues. Crochet rebel, right here. It is fun, though, and you should get started, too, if you’re feeling ambitious!)
Hope y’all have a great week; be on the lookout for this week’s Weekly Gathering and possibly a Doctor Who post, too!
Have you ever done a crochet challenge? Would you like to? Tell me about it!
