I found these amazing blog posts, here and here to inspire me, got out an old crochet hook and leftover wool, tuned in to youtube and produced this:
On the strength of this tiny sample I ordered supplies and started to make my basket. It was a bit of a learning curve and at one point I lost stitches, but embracing 'accept imperfections' I carried on and got more fluent and tidy.
Now I'm really pleased with myself and keep looking at my basket and thinking 'I made that!' And the colours are just so me!

Cotton: Lily Cotton, Sugar & Cream colour - Fruit Punch
So now I need a new crochet project to keep my fingers busy. I'm scouring the internet for ideas and will keep you posted.
Thanks for dropping by today.
