Basket Case

Look what I made this week! I've been wanting to make a basket like this for years. But when I tried it ages ago it kept getting unwound or tangled so I bagged it and gave it up as a bad job. Then a few weeks ago I came across a wonderful basket tutorial on the Moda Bakeshop blog by Vanessa from V and Co. Here's the link:

I'm so grateful for Vanessa for setting me on the right track. As soon as I saw her tutorial I was able to figure out most of the things that I'd been doing wrong. So this time, with a bit of trial and error, I managed it. I love the way the circle spirals around. It reminds me of rag rugs, jelly rolls and Danish pastries.
