Thank you so much for the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday! It really made the day extra fun! :)
As an early celebration, Melanie and I took a basket weaving class this past Sunday, and it was so much fun!
We started making our yarn baskets and are probably about 1/2 way done.
I am looking forward to this Saturday morning when we get together again and finish them.
I love taking classes at our favorite yarn store. Here is the classroom!
Look at all the pretty rattan weavers!
Here is Melanie working on her basket.
This is my basket so far...
and this is Melanie's...
I like that the yarn basket has an open top with no handle. I think it looks more like a woven bowl.
I will make more baskets in the future. It is very relaxing and each one is unique.
Our teacher, Margaret, was so right when she said the basket makes itself. We can help shape it, but it has its own personality and plan for how it will ultimately turn out.
I promise to show them to you again when they are all done. :)
Have you tried basket weaving before? What is your favorite structure to make?
