a quick project






I bought this old cheese mold last summer in hopes of using it to store root vegetables.  As it turned out this was not a very good potato bucket.  So it sat, like so many other items, in our basement, a treasure trove of cool old things.    Well, it just got elevated to first floor status, as my knitting box.   The overflowing basket of yarn & needles  in the wardrobe was getting to be too much.  So I made a quick cloth lining, organized all my yarn into one place and popped the top on.   Now I can knit in my favorite chair and have a place to put my coffee. 


ahhh,  if only all projects could be this quick & satisfying.

I love it! I have a hamper basket I've been meaning to do this with. Very inspiring idea.

Well done! Like the box and even the material you lined it with! Double bonus that it can also provide a resting place for your coffee cup!
