At some point I realised that I urgently needed a "project basket"- handmade by myself off course. My first attempt was using plarn (plastic yarn) as I have made a pretty tote bag before as a recycling effort - but half way through I abandoned the mission after breaking a crochet hook and the basket not looking as sturdy as I intended.
I couldn't leave it at that though.. I saw a little basket a lady had made of T-Yarn at a local wool shop and that was the answer! I ordered some (they have an awesome array of colours) and finally my basket took shape. Using a pattern from the Crochet in Colour Blog as guide, I modified to suit my requirements and VOILA!
