another yarn basket

9 Nov

‘member this? this is something i cast on for when i saw this clever thingy. i started the bag but i changed my mind and thought i’d make a storage basket instead. so i did. as opposed to the ishi, i knitted it in one piece as entrelac, but it would be just as easy to knit the squares and then sew them together. as you can see, i also ran out of red yarn 🙂 it went through the washer twice on 60 degrees, and shrunk from approx. 32x32x22 to 25x25x18. i’m very happy with the result, great stash-buster and i can never get too many bins for my yarn…
