If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Tarn Basket

The Q hook just made the fabric
too loose. I wasn't happy.

The finished basket. It's not lopsided.
It's just a very flexible fabric.
With just a few more days left to Earth Month, I wanted to show you another tarn project I made.

This is a tarn basket. I tried this with my Q hook, but it turned out way too floppy and too holey to work. The sides wouldn't stand up and it just looked like a tarn frisbee.

So I ripped it out and began again with a M hook. Much better. The stitches are tighter and firmer and more basket-y.

This is about a shirt and a half worth of tarn. I think I will use it to hold tarn balls. What do you think?
