I am lucky to have such a handy husband! I needed some basket legs, so I drafted up a pattern and three days later had these perfectly crafted oak legs in my grasp. He’s a wood-turning master, ladies and gentlemen.
Wool-drying baskets are exactly what you think they are: baskets used for drying wool; usually woven in a plain weave and elevated on wooden legs that allow for extra air flow. The pattern I used was a twill weave, and it was both easier to weave and more beautiful than I expected.
While I don’t need it for drying wool, it’s perfect for holding all the yarn that used to be awkwardly wedged into the shelf where I keep all my craft supplies. It looks so lovely filled with balls of yarn that I’ve put it on display next to my fireplace.
