Coiled by Sue Cowell for KJ HartsogI love this basket. It was inspired by Sue's
niece that belongs to a Hawiian Dance Troup. The
basket has a hula skirt! It measures about 9 inches in
diameter and three inches high. It has greenish
needles for most of the body accented by wine colored
needles in the bottom and a stripe around the inside.
The out side has a hula skirt of brown wool and cotton
rug yarn that sets off the texture of the basket so
well. Sue's stitching with artificial sinew is so
perfectly spaced. I must try this artificial sinew for
myself. The basket is so strong and it doesn't appear
to have been treated in any way. It smells so good
with the cotton, wool and pine needle combination.
