101 Crafts to Make = Crochet Basket #80

The moment you have all been waiting for: the first craft from my 101 Crafts challenge.
So I finished this crocheted basket last night. It turned out pretty fun don't you think?

The start of the basket.

Finished basket! I am really excited with it.

The pattern says that you can use spray starch or fabric stiffener to make it stand up straighter but I like the slouchy look. I am not sure if I will make many more since it took quite a bit of time, but it sure turned out nice.
I have been working on a number of new things (all from the list) so look forward to more fun projects this week and next. The weather has been crummy so I have had a lot of time indoors to create.
