The swirling layers, shape and depth of this project basket reminds me of the Glacial Potholes here in Shelburne Falls. The Glacial Project Basket from Valley Yarns uses three strands of bulky yarn held together, which means this project comes together fast.The color changing ombre effect keeps your attention and becomes a subtle flow of tones once felted.
