Basket Making Progress

I thought I'd give you a quick update on my
basket making progress.

It's taken me a few weeks to get to this point.
Of course, I've been working on other (many other) projects
at the same time.

Last night I decided to time myself and see how long it takes me to do one row.
Now, this basket is quite large, so each row seems to take longer
and longer to complete.

And if you look closely you will see the design I decided to
incorporate by using a different stitch.

Well, one row took over an hour of uninterrupted work!

I want to make this basket at least another inch or two larger, so estimate
about another 20 hours of work.

The application to enter it in the State Fair is printed and
will be filled out and mailed this weekend.

I'll keep you posted:-)
