I made it to the yarn shop today - I needed some things to work on over the holiday weekend! While there I realized that I'm probably the only knitter without one of Lantern Moon's gorgeous baskets for my yarn, so I was only too happy to purchase one - especially knowing their social and environmental policies.
I picked out one of the rice baskets, and I was a little worried about fitting it on my bike, but the top part of the rice basket folds down easily and it conformed perfectly to the shape of my bike basket. Problem solved!
I bought enough yarn to finish my project, and a few extras, too! This beautiful cotton yarn was on sale, so I snatched up three skeins.
