I made these little things back in December when I should have been making cookies and wrapping presents. As often happens when I have a long list of things to do, I get distracted by an odd idea and go down that path instead of doing the things on my list and making things a bit less stressful on myself. But I digress.
Our boy has a bed with big drawers underneath it, mainly as his room is tiny and we wanted a way to eliminate as much furniture as possible, we chose a bed with storage built in. But three large drawers means that most of his clothes are in a big jumble and it is hard to find things. Especially small things like socks. So when I was searching for gift ideas back in December I came across a pattern for a bread basket at GarnStudio. And I thought it might make a really great sock organizer. So I made one out of some red wool I had in my wool basket.
And it did make a really great sock organizer. Of course, when I took all the socks out of the miscellaneous drawer (pyjamas, swim suits, underwear, socks, gloves, mitts, etc) I had such a big pile of socks that I had almost more than one baskets worth. So someday I need to make another red sock organizer. Because the idea worked so well that I made a blue basket, to hold underwear.
One of these days, I will knit the pattern in the suggested cotton because I'm sure it will make a fabulous bread basket.
