if your majesty doth ask it

I will tell about the basket!  (Sorry, watched “The Court Jester” recently, couldn’t resist.)  So yeah.  I’m making a basket.  BUT FIRST:

How are ya’ll holding up?  I hope everyone is crafting lots to stay sane at home.  Many of the lovely ladies in the knitting/crochet group at work are meeting via video chat since we can’t meet in person, which I’m super-duper grateful for.

In fact, these group members are the ones who inspired me to make a basket!  It’s made using the YouTube video tutorial from Jayda in Stitches for the Big Beautiful Basket (although I’ve modified it a bit to suit my yarn adjustments and favored techniques).  It’s extremely simple and quick, as you use 3 strands of #4 yarn held together with a 10mm hook (I’m using 4 strands of #3 yarn though, because I have quite a few Lion Brand Mandala cakes):

Big Beautiful Basket

I started this today, and here’s what I’ve got now:

Big Beautiful Basket

It’s slightly over a foot in diameter and is being made to hold my other WIP as I work on it (well, one of many other WIPs, actually, but we don’t talk about that), the Kim Taehyung blanket.

I have a feeling baskets could be addictive.  That’s what the other ladies in the work group are telling me.  I don’t need a ton of them though — I barely have room for 1 (and this will probably find a home underneath a side table, tbh), so if I do more they’ll either be a good bit smaller or they’ll be gifts for others.

So yeah, that’s about it.  Thanks for stopping by, everyone!  See you soon!
