I decided to try one of many things I have pinned in Pinterest. I found this really cute little crochet basket and thought I would give it a go. The pattern, which can be found HERE, calls for an extra chunky yarn and a size 8 hook.
As some of you know I have recently been spinning my own yarn and have therefore needed to learn how to find out the weigh of yarn (ie is it DK, worsted, bulky etc). I discovered that this one was 8 wraps per inch (wpi) which is a bulky weight. The pattern calls for two strands of extra bulky in order for the basket to be stable but I thought I would give this one a go as I had it already.
One other thing, here is a notebook that I decorated a few years ago using some craft papers and toppers. As I have a LARGE number of notebooks already I would like to send this to a new home. If you are interested in adopting this A5 size lined journal please say in a comment on this post. If more than one person is interested I will draw a random recipient.
