Bedecked Basket

My mum bought me a basket from the local farmer's market as a present. The idea being I can keep all my current knitting bits in so they don't end up everywhere.

It's a lovely basket but I thought it needed a bit of decoration. I've not done any crochet for quite some time.

I used Attic 24's May Roses pattern and did a htr circle for the liner.

Not sure whether to add any more, so I'm leaving it for the moment.

Dyeing Workshop

At the weekend, I went to a workshop at A Good Yarn, Cleethorpes. It was a "Dye your own yarn" workshop with Jonathan from Chroma Yarns. It was great fun and everyone made gorgeous coloured yarn.

Hopefully, it'll find itself made into a pair of gloves (for a friend) at some point.
