One of my earlier memories is sitting on the couch watching my grandmother, legs curled up under her, crocheting a baby blanket for some cousin-to-be. She sat in her blue cozy chair with her yarn basket just next to her on the pink carpet (it was 1990-something and the carpet was brand new and the epitome of style). I can't remember the print of it (the basket, not the carpet), but it must have been vintage even then because I remember not liking that it didn't match her living room. I was a tad fussy as a child. I think I've outgrown that... I think.

It's not a very strong memory, more a blip than anything else. I may even be merging memories together. Maybe that's why I love looking at the above baskets- strengthens my memories and aids in some nostalgia. I love the print on rhan's, the colors of gallivants' and the details on AMradio's basket. How to choose? 

Fantastic Friday Find!
