I love making box bags. They are the perfect size for holding sock projects, makeup, small handmade gifts, etc. in. A co-worker had a birthday last month and she received a hand knit pair of socks and my last box bag. I decided I needed to whip up some more for future gift giving. I also gave away the bag I used for holding sock projects.
I realize that I am not allowed to work on any sock projects until I finish the Chevron Scarf I'm working on. Granted, this is a self imposed exile from my beloved DPNs but a necessary one as the scarf would have found a safe corner to 'rest' in for many months. It's a lovely scarf, just a boring pattern to knit. (I have also banned myself from taking pictures of it until it's finished. I'm 5'9", the scarf is 5'9" & only HALF FINISHED! Enough said.
