My crocheting has been suffering a "creators block" - well for a couple of reasons. My tendonitis hit my right hand and wow, was it ever painful. I couldnt hold a crochet hook, so needless to say, my crocheting stopped. And my needle felting stopped as well. For a little bit anyway. I did my usual 2 day therapy with Aleve and it sure made a difference. So I think I am back on track again (hopefully).
So I decided to try crocheting again, and finished a crocheted basket for my daughter. The basket measures 12" across. I used 4-ply worsted weight yarn, doubled the yarn to make the basket and give it some substance. It was too flimsy with single strand of yarn. I will post the pattern as soon as I am done finalizing it. Tried two variations, one with a ribbon bow and one without. She liked the one with the ribbon bow. So here it is.
