Squishy Basket

While it's looking pretty in a basket I thought I'd post up a couple of pictures.
I have done the chain of doom (nice and loose and it made that first row much easier), and the first couple of rows next one is on a colour change hence the colours in a basket to work out if I'm going with random or repeating patterns.
Not finding the acrylic too bad but definately prefer the real thing. Not really my colours but I just went for the easy option and they do have a lovely vintage look about them when crocheted up together. There's another one I want to do and I want to use earthy browns and greens for that one.

Ooh are you starting a granny stripe? Once together the colours do look pretty; there were some colours I weren't sure of, but once crocheted in they do all go well together.

the stylecraft gets softer once used too, and its suprisingly warm.... but yeah, prefer the real thing too.. planning to save up to buy the yarn for a pure wool blanket..ooh that will be heaven.
