I'm skiving off making another basket as my fingers and wrists are aching! I've made a basket or two every day this week so far and I'm learning more and more with each one I do. At the moment I'm making a basket based on an Irish kisheen basket.
The little basket in the picture, with the apples in, was the first I made this week and I found it very hard as I'd used withies that were too thick. So I decided to move on to making the easier, larger, shopping type baskets and practicing the different rands. The basket in the middle is waiting for a handle and the one on the far left I've decided to have as a chucking basket. The little basket at the front is a blackberry basket and is strong as anything. I'm always amazed at the strength of baskets.
I'm loving making baskets, in fact, I'm missing it now so I'm off back to the kisheen!!
