I was inspired to try some by Pumpkinknits's collection of boxes (Rav link) which are truely objects of wonder.
I picked up some Lamb's Pride Bulky ('nother Rav link) from TIK in a variety of colours and got started. Even tho' the instructions were clear enough on the subject, i.e. that you need 3 skeins for the biggest box size, I was still very surprised to run out of yarn after only 1 side and the base. With the yarn held doubled, it took no time at all.
Not so bright really, eh?
So I started the smaller size with some fabulous red. In the unfelted form, it's wonderful. It's in the washer right now. I can't wait!
