Sandy Bulgrin taught a workshop using the knot as the beginning of a rib hen basket at the Bedford Basketweavers Guild annual convention last weekend.
I used a combination of cream, turquoise, green and tan round reed, flat reed and seagrass to add a "beachy" color scheme.

What better way to spend a rainy Saturday than weaving with friends?
Central PA Basket Weaver's Guild hosted a one day workshop lead by Annetta Kraayeveld. Her website, www.prairiewoodbasketry.com includes her patterns, kits and blog, The Basketry Teacher. If you ever have a chance to take a class with Annetta you won't regret it.
Everyone had a great time while learning some new techniques. The basket is woven with a cream and dark brown 2/2 herringbone twill base. The cats head ears are formed and sides woven up with a 3/3 twill accenting the dyed and natural spokes. Three T-Twining rows are the focal point around the middle of the basket.
