nous sommes finis

ok, i haven't taken french in a long time, so if i spelled something wrong, please don't write ;-)

the baskets, they are done!

everyone did a wonderful job!!! they are all beautiful :-)
karen wove a tall 10" oval purse with double handles, phyllis wove a 9" oval purse with a walnut handle, carol wove a 9" flatback purse with a leather strap, and i wove an 8" round topped basket, still to get it's walnut handle.

karol lindquist, our teacher, is in the middle.
i must admit i'm glad the class is over, it was a very intense (but rewarding) 5 days. was too pooped at night to knit a stitch, and am woefully behind on all my blogs and lists.

this weekend, karen, phyllis, and our dhs are headed to the east coast. am trying to find the socks i started a long time ago for some mindless knitting.

p.s. i look slightly demented in the photo with my basket..

Wow, everyone's basket turned out beautifully. Each are very unique-no two the same. It was nice looking at each of them. Glad it was a successful class. Now rest up.

Gorgeous work (by everyone!). It looks like the intensity of the class paid off in the end with beautiful finished baskets. You're really multi-talented.
