Finished – T shirt yarn basket

Happy Monday readers!

Over the weekend I finished the T shirt yarn basket.     

 I used a self stripping yarn to finish the top and added a scallop edging. I love this edging at the moment, it’s simple and very effective in my opinion πŸ™‚ 

If you want to give it a try I normally start from a sc row, then I skip one sc and do 5 dc in the next sc, skip one sc and slip stitch in the next sc and repeat.  

And here it is holding more of my stash (well I’m actually using this for my LOTR cal so does that still count as a stash? 😁)


Have an awesome week!

Basket and flowers

Happy Monday lovely readers! 

This week is going to be pretty short! I had work today but tomorrow is Australia Day so we’re having the day off πŸ™‚ our plan is to go for a lovely walk along the creek  in our suburb. I will try to take some pics on the way. 

I was inspired by Nat and her fabric crochet basket last week and since I already had a bunch of fabric yarn, I gave it a go! I think it turned out pretty good and it’s the right size to store some of my unused yarn stash πŸ™‚    

I have also decided this year to participate in a local craft competition. They are having a tea cosie contest with a “country theme”. I’ve decided to do a big bouquet of wildflowers on my cosie. My entry will be a mixed media, I’m knitting the cosie and will crochet the embellishments (flowers). I’m not sure yet which flowers I’ll go with but this is what I’ve got so far.  
I really like how the stem and the small flower turned out and I love the purple flower. 

What do you guys think?
