Crochet, Basketry, and Felting 5/11/08

This started out as yarn . . . that had a ball band that I can no longer find. I believe it was a Lion Brand wool. Any who, I held three strands together and crocheted them into one long strand. I felted the strand and then using a needle and thread coiled it into a basket.

The Basket

I actually really enjoyed this process and will definitely try it again. I will post pictures later of it blocked, because my coiling was a little off. I think this might be a little more interesting with a finer yarn and a larger basket.
