Stash Basket 

My Grandma gave me some vintage rug yarn that was made of polyester and cotton. I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to make a garment or any like that with the yarn but I thought that I might be able to use it. The other day I pulled it out and whipped up this basket in about five hours. I have that gigantic shanklet shawl in there plus 11 cakes of yarn. I think that I will call that big basket success. I need to make more of these. However, next time I think that I will use a smaller hook to make a denser fabric. The sides don’t stand up as well as they should.
