Moebius Basket

The Moebius Basket is finished. I will buy a small ivy plant to go inside of it. Here is the basket before felting and then after.

I love the colors. This was knit with Manos del Uruguay. The feel of this handspun wool is very soft. Dyed over wood fires marbleizes the yarn. The co-operative that made the wool, aims for the organization to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women.

You really have to feel this object, almost like it is spiritual and sacred. The piece turns out so that all the stitches are flowing around from the handle to the bowl. Only one day of work and volia, conversation piece. Thank you Mum, now it is your turn to try.

Idea!! Maybe you could make one for Gran, for Christmas, not too big, to hang on her walker. She needs something to carry the portable phone.
