FOs - felted basket and stitch markers
Okay, maybe adding the stitch markers is cheating a little bit... but they're knitting-related, and they turned out so well! They're for my August Birthday Swap pal... I'm pretty sure she doesn't frequent this board, so I think I'm safe.
As for the basket... it's Patons Classic Merino, dyed with Kool-aid and knit into a basket using the Booga Bag pattern as a very vague guideline. (i.e. knit a square of garter st, knit the sides up from there, slap a handle on wherever you feel like.) I think it turned out pretty well. The finished version looks a little lopsided and lumpy, but that's because it's full of cooling wraps for my grandma and great-aunt.
So... pictures!
