over the summer, my sister jenah and i started a project together while she was visiting - these knitted baskets from the book "more last-minute knitted gifts" by joelle hoverson my mom had given to me last christmas.  we didn't finish them in the time we were together, but it didn't take long after jenah left for me to finish this super simple project.  i love it!  more than the project itself, i always love a knitted anything that has the sentimental value of getting to work on it in the company of friends.  there's just something about knitting with other people.

and you guys are great!  all your encouragement about my machine knit sweater has propelled me into working on my next sweater.  it always seems to be that the longer i leave something, the more encouragement i need to pick it back up.  i truly appreciate your kind words!

  2. Love this basket, I'm actually trying to find a pattern for an XL one- I want to make one large enough to hold lots of stuff toys in the girls' playroom.
