I had a great morning at my friend Sonya's house. She taught me how to make a melon basket. It was very refreshing being able to do something new with a lovely finished project in a day. Sonya is a patient teacher and a very experienced professional basket maker. She does sell some of her baskets on her etsy site.
The basket I made is resting on a scarf I made for my daughter from Christmas present yarn she gave me. I think this basket will make a great little knitting basket for me.
