Tisket has humble origins. The manufacturer of my horizontal camera mount suggests a counterweight of string and a water bottle. When I read that, my knitting brain said, “I could knit a bag for that!”

The charming, stretchy result is Tisket: A Basket. It easily holds any number of things: smooth stones, balls of leftover yarn, marbles, etc. Not only is it adorable, I used an inline cast-on for the handles that I haven’t found anywhere else.
