FO crochet basket

I finished the crochet basket, my new wip-basket/bag. I used two strands of fingering weight acrylic wool and a 5mm crochet hook. i made the bottom disc first, then the container walls and the included handles. the diameter is about 25cm (10in). height about 20cm (8in) to the handles. right after crocheting it was quite sturdy, but not too nicely shaped, the bottom was quite wavy, so I tried to slightly block it. I should not have done it, because now it is just soft and floppy and does not stand on its own anymore. Oh well, i just have to fill it up with big WIPs. It did use quite a lot of yarn tho, at least it did burn some stash.
