Arnold! Not the Governor!

As a lot of you know, I've been knitting a lot lately. I took a class on knitting a basket with a twisted handle all as one piece and then fulling it in the washer. Well, the original basket was cute (I just received a first place ribbon at the Webster County Fair for that one) but I wanted a much bigger one for practicality purposes. So we did some calculations and came up with what we thought were instructions to double the size of the basket - NOT! What we ended up with was the equivalent of the Arnold Schwartzenegger character in the movie Twins - my first basket being Danny DeVito and my second one being Arnold. I've entered Arnold in the Ozark Empire Fair and we will find out sometime the end of the week if I won anything for it. In the meantime, here is a picture of him all decked out with 18 balls of yarn for the fair. I needle-felted the quilt squares on the side to tie it in with my love of quilting.
