Let's try a new craft!

Shall we?

I bought the basket wrapping with sari silk 'kit' from Darn Good Yarn--it is basically a bunch of sari silk ribbon and a somewhat confusing pattern with really bad photographs. Anyway--I figured I could find a YouTube video to help figure out how to make a basket and I did, so I gave it a try;

It is the bottom of the basket, and photographed way too dark, but you can see the spiral of the basket.

I kind of bore easily, and I got bored doing this. But I will continue, as it is kind of a nice change from knitting and it is a bit of instant gratification.

Tim is back, safe, yay!

This is the busiest week of the year for me: in addition to my classes, I have 64 papers to grade, three honors defenses, and a two hour advisory council meeting this morning. I'll be gla when this week is over.

More on the basket when I have it in good l ight.
