Crochet Talk's Ultimate Crocheted Kitchen Gift Basket

I love the "Crochet Talk's Ultimate Crocheted Kitchen Gift Basket" - it's so beautifully organized and someone has really worked a lot to put everything in neat little boxes :-) The only problem is that it was created 2000 and now is 2007... a LOT happens in 7 years.

So - here's the updated version of it.

The idea is to crochet one item a week and thus create a nice gift basket in a month without much work. All you need to do is to pick a theme and crochet :-)

*** The pattern is at freepatterns.com. All the patterns there are free FOR MEMBERS - but it doesn't cost anything. You just need to register...
