My first basket is finished.  It’s a darling little thing–a bit whopsided, but then, it is my first.  And the bottom is actually flat, which means it stands up just exactly as it’s supposed to.  As far as I’m concerned, that’s quite an achievement! 

This particular basket is rather small, with an upright handle–I’ll post pictures as soon as I upload them–but I’m thinking next time I may try to do a large, shallow basket.  We’ll see.  I don’t have the vines for another basket at the moment; I’ll have to cut some more on my walk tomorrow morning.
