Study in Black & White Notes:
Due to a debilitating back injury (where essentially I could not move for two weeks!), I was at least still able to focus nearly 8-10 hours a day for a week, creating this basket.. around 60 hours total. My goal was to see how a swirl pattern, created with the same stitches but different colors, would work if it were continued up the sides of a basket. This was the result.
