Moebius Basket

Felted Moebius Basket from Cat Bordhi's Second Treasury of Magical Knitting. It took me several tries to get the moebius cast-on correct, during which I did not lose my patience, because casting on incorrectly multiple times is still more fun than grading papers. I like this cute little guy because:
  1. Once I figured out the cast-on, it was a very quick project
  2. It used a single skein of variegated Manos that I couldn't not buy (oh, I do love Manos), but which I had no use for
  3. It's felted. I love felting--it's like magic
  4. It's a moebius, which is just kinda cool
  5. I can put stuff in it

Does this mean if I say "Ruthie is adorable" or "I really admire Thing 1" that you will send one of them to me?

Given the current poop level here, could you sent Thing 1 in that adorable sweater you knit before she was born, and not darling Ruthie?

You don't know how tempting your offer is, Phyllis, especially at the end of a school vacation! Heck, I'd bet Thing 1 would loooove a trip east!

And if you're already full-up on poop, you definitely don't need Ruthie.
