What are you most proud of? I'm proud that when the first attempt, I didn't settle. The shape had been lost due to some inadvertent stitch increases and realising I'd been doing it inside out. Thankfully Marty came to my rescue with some perfectly timed advice. It gave me the motivation to frog a lot of work, but end up with something I love. I also added a lot of increase rounds to the base as I have MASSIVE yarn storage needs. (28cm diameter). For this reason, I also modified the handles to be chunkier and longer for stability. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you've not done a lot of in-the-round crochet, or three-deminsional crochet (as in, there's a base and sides), don't get discouraged if it takes a couple of goes!
