Warmup Baskets

November 21, 2010

I started this endeavor by making a few of the smaller baskets on my list, as a warmup. Not that small baskets are always easy– an example of a tough one is coming soon– but if you stick to basic techniques and small sizes, some baskets can take an hour start-to-finish.

I usually hang out on the couch in front of the TV to weave:

Here's me a few rows into weaving a small basket

I love the satisfaction of finishing something in one sitting, as I can do with this kind of basket. Here’s my end result: four small but beautiful baskets!

More to come soon!

    “In one sitting”, how cool.

    These are beautiful Nina! I didn’t know you were interested in basket-weaving. Have you ever heard of craftivism? I had a girl in my class do her senior project on it. Happy Belated B-Day. I hope you’re doing well.
