262: bliss crafts - baskets
i started making the baskets after we moved south.
i hadn't crocheted much in a while but i still had a big stash of yarn. and somehow it began mysteriously multiplying while mr. bliss wasn't looking.
i knew i had to do something with it or risk mr. bliss noticing the ever-increasing volumes of brightly-colored balls of fluff.
so i got online and searched a gazillion websites for yarn crafts and crochet patterns.
one of the things i found was a how-to for baskets. of course mine didn't come out like the ones in the picture. (it never does...)
but i didn't give up.
i began experimenting with color and materials. i learned something interesting: the baskets already know what they're gonna look like when i start. i'm just a vessel for bringing them into view. '-)
