Isn't this the coolest "gift" box? It's a lined wicker basket with a covered lid! I was looking for something like a hat box for her to store her sweater in...gotta keep my Niece's white and orange fur off the pretty dark green sweater! I found this basket at Michael's...on clearance for only $7!
and the Christmas present yarn...a pair of felted clogs for mom; a kitty bed for my "niece" and four throw pillows; two each for my aunt and my MIL. Guess I better get knitting. Oh...and I forgot...a lace shawl for my sister...I wonder where I put that yarn? It came in this box...here's hoping MY cat didn't find it! It's a fluffy angora/cashmere...at $25 a skein...that blasted AC had better not have found it! Phew, I see it...sitting on the rocking chair...must have fallen out of the box! You know, I honestly don't know how they cram that much yarn in the box. This stuff was wedged in and packed down. As soon as I cut the strapping tape, the box flaps popped right up and the yarn came swelling out the opening! I swear it was screaming, "me, me...knit with me first!"
