Friday I made a round colorful 2 /2 twill basket. The base measures 8" square and the finished diameter of the rim is 10". The rim is lashed with a piece of heavy waxed linen.
Saturday I wove two square ribbed baskets. The larger basket began with an 8" square handle, while the smaller basket used a 6" square. After making a decorative handle and God's eye, all the whittled ribs were inserted into the basket behind the God's eye at the same time. I used thin cane to begin the weaving and hold the ribs in place. The remainder of the basket was woven with colored flat reed.
