Especially for Jean

Jean, here are photos of the Mason-Dixon felted boxes. I think they're very cool looking. In the interest of full disclosure, these are my own photos of the Mason-Dixon photos (which are by Steve Gross and Sue Daley). Am I violating any copyright laws here? One photo is the individual box. The other shows a nested set in bright colors.

You knit the box flat and then fold and join the corners with single crochet. It looks like even I could do it and I know nothing about crocheting. You can use a couple of different colors in each box to really jazz things up. If you're doing a nested set, it's recommended that you felt them all at the same time to make sure they actually fit inside each other.

According to the Mason-Dixon folks, knitting these boxes is downright addictive. And you can use them to hold your knitting supplies!

Nancy, cool! What I'd like to do is a box with a lid, but I guess I could sort of reverse the box, only shorter, of course, and a little wider to fit over the top.

I'll get online and see about ordering the book--thanks mucho!

P.S. BB, I'm so jealous that you have so many photos of past needlework projects. I've done oodles of all sorts, crewel, crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint...but I've given away virtually all of them and have no record, even photos, left. Duh, Jean...
