I've long loved baskets and while basketweaving is among one of the many things I'd like to work on learning I haven't gotten around to it yet. Crocheting though is something I'm always doing and I love anything I can crochet. While looking at my desk last night I notice a tampon I'd idly stuck in my pen holder (yea, I know what in the world...) The desk itself was rather cluttered and I decided I would go and clear it up. Now I will point out that due to my fixation on the oddness of a tampon in my pen holder I actually ended up not truly cleaning my desk so much as creating. Given my focus on paperwork and the technical side of the store lately this is perfectly fine! I browsed my queue on Ravelry, knowing I had marked a few projects that were baskets earlier. I was between a few pattern but decided on a "fun" one rather than your garden variety box-shaped basket. A few hours later I have created a fun little basket to stash tampons in!
