Might I mention that this is an incredibly wonderfully organic creative process!!!!!
The slightest angle on the row you are sewing and you can get a whole different look!
It is far less messy then the coiling we did in pottery class!
I love the subtle shading of the thread color.
And I tried to make different shapes for the 'holes' this time.
When there is only one, it shapes the rim asymmetrically which is interesting.
When you try to center a swirl on each end, it is a bit interesting to line them up
but it makes both ends lift up and look like handles.
I am working on a graceful ending for the baskets, too.
I am going to be making these for quite a while-
they satisfy the a lot of creative aspects with a relatively fast turnaround.
I love containers-and so do a lot of knitters-it must be that left/right brain balancing act!!!!
