Finished Chunky Knit Basket and Reading On

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. There is still so much snow here in Toronto we got 45 centimeters of snow on Monday January 17th. I went for a walk tonight after work which was nice because I was inside for a few days and hadn't gone out not only because of the snow also just busy at lunch the past two days and then it gets dark early so I don't usually have time to go before it gets dark outside or am busy making dinner early. The sidewalks are paved now in some places so walking was better than it would have been the past few days. 

I have knitted a basket using the Chunky Knit Basket Pattern from Angie Cruise. These baskets are really fun and fast to knit up because of the chunky yarn used in the pattern. I love the basket in the gray yarn I got which is the Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick tweeds in colorway gray marble.  

The pattern calls for crocheting a macrame cord edge at the top, but because I don't know how to crochet, I saw some comments that people used the seed stitch at the top instead so I gave it a try and it makes a nice top edge of the basket. 

I put some pens in to show the height and also that it can be good storage for little things here and there. I will knit more of these and was thinking of attempting to knit covers or tops for them so I can keep Millie out of them as well. 

I am still reading The Bookshop of Yesterdays by Amy Meyerson. I am interested in reading on to find out more. It has taken me awhile to get into this storyline, but I am being patient because I can see that it is getting more interesting. I am also reading Expecting Better by Emily Oster and hope to learn more from this book on the pregnancy journey and tips on each stage of the process.

Joining along with As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday.
