My husband politely suggested that my knitting basket was, shall we say, a bit of an eyesore in the living room these days with all kinds of things shoved in there and falling out all over the place, etc. So, I took the hint and went in search of a decorative container that I could still keep in the living room but hide all the mayhem. I found just the thing, a pretty wooden chest, at Value City. It only has enough space in it for my works in progress and I'll still have to keep a good bit of my other stuff in a different location, but I have to admit, it looks a lot better and my work is still at hand. It has a velvet lining! No yarn will get snagged inside on anything. Run, don't walk, to Value City and check this out. It was only $29.00 and really, it's fairly large. It's difficult to tell from the photo.
