I purchased this hemp about six years ago after designing a knitting bag that was crocheted hemp on the outside and lined with linen. It was my "ultimate" knitting bag for awhile. The liner had pockets all the way around and a hole at the top, to allow one strand of yarn through, discouraging little hands from rummaging around in my bag. It was also very squish-able so I could throw it in the car with all of the other sundry back and forth to school items. This bag is sounding pretty good, again. I wonder where I put it?
Anyway, I had plans to make a few more. That was six years ago. Now, in my eternal quest to use up some of my previously purchased supplies, I am making baskets.
Simple crocheted, one skein baskets. There seems to be an infinite number of ways to finish the top and I may try some stripes with different materials. I haven't decided exactly what I'm going to do with them, but when I am done I will have ten baskets and I will have used up all this hemp. Leaving a bin free for more supplies. By the end of the summer, I could have all new stuff! Just kidding. Maybe I will use these as gift baskets.
I'm trying to re-organize something and make something everyday while the big three are at camp. So far, so good!
