Little Boxes, Little Boxes, Little Boxes Everywhere

Little boxes, little boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There's a green red one and a pink green one
And a blue one and a yellow white one
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky Lamb's Pride
And they all look just the same.

or nearly.

Here are some of the felted boxes from recent endeavours. They were great fun to work on and came out really great.

Lamb's Pride Bulky.

Held double.

No trouble.

Aren't they lovely?

If you're wondering how many boxes I can make without having to change the pattern, the answer is 3.

The 4th box (in white) is according to spec, but the sides are in stocking stitch.

The results are a bit different, but the contrast with smooth side and the garter stitch base is pleasing.

There are more of these in my future.

I can tell.

Ooooh I like the mod - the contrast is a lovely addition :) But they're all just booot-i-ful!

Thanks! Yeah, I think felting is my new thang!
