Do you remember this
And wonder what it is,
It changed along the way
A diamond trellis basket
It was the first completed item from this crate of yarn, a gift I received from Brogen.
Brogen’s mum, Emma Sharma Hayes was a very talented lady and knitting was only one of those gifts. Alas she was not given time to use all the yarn in the crate above, before her allotted time among us had expired. Knowing I enjoy yarn crafts, the crate came my way.
The basket was my token of thanks to Brogen. I was so busy finishing it in the early hours of Saturday, that I forgot to take a photo of the finished item. I had to ask Brogen to email me a photo.
Now I wonder what I will make next…….?
love this- the basket trellis is amazing!
DM, it worked out well. The under basket was worked with three strands of the green and the trellis had two bulky yarns plus a green one.
really great 😀
Wonderful. Have fun with that yarn, GM.
Nancy, I have been gathering ideas to use up the single balls of yarn. Right now there are not enough hours in the day to doo all the things I want.
Oh, that is so pretty! You were lucky to receive such a wonderful gift. That yarn will come in handy.
Gigi,I love useful gifts and will enjoy playing and creating items with the yarn.
My yarn is sitting in a bag calling me. I am inspired by your effort.
Now you have something to do in the rest periods after surgery! 😀
Not likely. The drugs for pain make me breary eyed.
Pity that, but sleep is a healer.
Well done! I love this basket, did you have to stiffen it or did the bulky yarn need no assistance?
The green stood alone and the Diamond layer further stiffened it. I did reinforce the handles by darning the tripled yarn through the stitches on the inside of the basket.
I think I wasn’t too far off with my guess! You certainly told that yarn well.
Col, you were certainly warm with your guess.
That is a wonderful basket, your so talented!
Brighid, I still have plenty of your stash to play with. All I need is… time.
