Linen Basket - It's finished!


It took me all day yesterday but I finally finished it.  I've still to make a lid for it, but for now, it's finished!

It's got 3 different weaves in it, a border and a follow on trac border.  I enjoyed making it but was a bit knackered towards the end!  Can't wait until I'm more experienced.  Maybe then my thumbs and wrists wont hurt as much!

  2. Wow, a lovely creation. That will be spectacular for someone to have in their bedroom, and be able to look at it each morning. I love the texture of the different weaves.

  4. Absolutely Gorgous Hen! I really love the shape, and how the textures alternate, and even how the colours are balanced. Very visually stunning. Since we are in between homes now, our linen basket is a linen bag. :)
