It really is amazing what you can create with a handful of reeds. I wasn't sure what to expect with basket weaving but...it's addictive! Once we got the first few reeds hooked together I was totally engrossed in the process.
It only took me three hours to make this basket. Can you believe that? Three hours! There aren't a whole lot of fiber arts where you can complete a whole project in just a few hours so I was super excited to create something that I could actually use...in just a few hours. Woot!
Weaving...in any form is addictive.
I finally found a use for clothespins that didn't include a potato chip bag ;-)
Really, why would I use them with clothes? Just kidding.
One of the workshop participants was much faster at weaving that I was and she put her spindle basket to use right away. I have actually used mine already and it is great. I can put a few ounces of roving in the basket and just walk around and spin.
I missed out on the Whine or Wine Basket Workshop which totally bummed me out but it was my own fault for not registering in a timely fashion. I think that basket will be my next project. Now...share your adventures in Fiber Arts.
