After examining my friend's vintage beige mohair turban that her aunt knitted, I realized how easily I could make one on my own.  I also remembered 1.5 balls of vintage beige mohair that had been languishing in my stash yarn since I first learned to knit -- I'd come across a great bag of yarn leftovers at Goodwill while thrifting one day in college, and grabbed it for a few dollars, telling myself that one day I'd know how to use the stuff.  Mission accomplished!

the bag basket

I've been working on crocheting this basket out of sliced and spliced loops of grocery bags.  It's giving me a callus, but I love the random colors showing up from the printed bags, and the rough, sturdy structure it's building up to be.
