Crochet in Color: Lots of Free patterns. I always go with the smallest hook for baskets, bins, etc. More useful if you don't have to shape them. The only time I use a bigger hook is if slouchy is what the design calls for. Make Crocheted Baskets!
Green craft project idea - Repurpose a tuna can and clothes pins to make a flower pot or candle holders. Would be cute to do with a kid to work on fine motor skills. Would be cute for grandparents or as a Mothers Day gift! =) mothers day present :)
