willow fruit basket

Well, there I was, out tracking in a beautiful quarry off the island of Montreal, when I saw the willow of my dreams, and had to harvest. This is the fruit basket that came out of it, now sitting on our kitchen counter. I wove it while my roommate studied for her final. Its a pretty simple over and under pattern. I find fresh willow works best, but has a tendency to shrink with time, making it less sturdy.
