Then I started over with the #20 thread that I should have used in the beginning.
When I started once more, I had already decided on no hamper....Just an open basket. Great minds think alike.
The pattern is about the same. Just more rows between the looped areas.
When I finished part of the basket, I decided that it should be very messy and with things spilling out. A straight sided basket wouldn't work.
So I shaped the wires as I worked upwards and came up with a sort of wavy scalloped front.
When I finished the weaving, I edged it with braided thread and a chain stitch crochet thread to fill in the gaps between basket and braid.
Then, Tessie had to dig. She wanted to make sure that I didn't put anything in there that was of interest to her....The beads and the silk are now missing...
I guess I should go retrieve them before she has a chance to hid them.
See you tomorrow.
