coiled rope baskets

I was looking for something for the girls to do on our road trip
 besides watching movies, whining, and fighting
when I remembered the coiled rope baskets I made in high school.

So I grabbed some jute rope left over from my jute jug project.

Some yarn we had from our feeble attempts at "Knifty Knitting"

And instructions from here

 using a large plastic purple Knifty Knitter needle for the stitching
sorry no pic!

I got Peanut started with the first 2 rows and left her to it.
Princess is now wanting a go
but she has to wait til I get another plastic needle.

The house is quiet with Peanut concentrating on
wrap, wrap, wrap, figure 8
wrap, wrap, wrap, figure 8...

Why didn't I do earlier?! 
Quiet hand work
Projects they will be proud of
gifts for the Grandmas
