Willow Picnic Backpack - Rib-style Jo Campbell-Amsler at the 2013 Stowe Basketry Festival

Large shaker basket, rectangular form, black ash, double wrapped rim, finely shaped carved handles at either end, openwork woven bottom, Canterbury, NH, c. 1850, 17 1/2" h, 38 1/2" w, 24" d. The Doug Towle Shaker Collection. Willis Henry 9/4/5 lot 338a. Realized: $1,300 hammer.

A large basket in the bedroom to put throw pillows in at night instead of throwing them on the floor.

Exactly!! I like the round style with handles. Soft enough not to snag the yarn, sturdy enough to handle weight of a big project, flexible enough to stick in different spots around the house, and easy to carry.
