Day 10 of The 100 Day Project: 10% down, 90% to go! Today I finished weaving the plarn through the hideous plastic fry basket, then started painting it.

Shout out to the shitty surveying guys who left two cans of hot pink spray paint on my street as trash for me to clean up. Without them this little basket bb’s glow up wouldn’t have been possible. Praise be. 

So here’s what the basket looked like after I finished weaving the plarn through it.

I laid it on thicc, so it’s taking forever to dry. I’ll have to finish it up tomorrow.

In the meantime, here’s something to think about: wouldn’t it be crazy if grass was actually pink instead of green? If there was a new type of engineered grass that grew to be this color I would personally plant it everywhere and have the most extra yard on the block. What about you?
