Not Quite Knitting

I admit it, I didn't end up doing a lot of knitting in Fiji. (Fiji was fabulous, by the way) I did manage to get m craft on anyway, despite the knitting lull.There was a basket weaving class on sunday while we were at the resort.
You have to pull the coconut leaves really tight if you don't want there to be any gaps in our basket.
The handles are just french braided (you pick up one leave from each side every time you twist)
The center of the leaf is cut out to create the opening.
And there you have a basket, to hold my-not-that-much-done-yet knitting.
