Basket saga, Chapter Two.
Meet Small, Medium and Large, though none of them is too big as the base for this picture was the top of a wooden kitchen stool. I am getting better--practice, practice, practice. The small one was done the day of the workshop with Nadine Spier (see Basket Workshop) and then about a week later I attempted the medium-sized one and found that I had forgotten everything. In addition I was using some local needles whose gauge is much finer. Finishing was a struggle. The larger one is much more on track with my memory restored. It was done with some pine needles that I purchased whose gauge was much larger. In comparison, now that I know better what I am doing, I do like the thinner needles better but do need more experience. On to Chapter Three.
