I blogged about this book a while back Uncommon Crochet, and picked it up earlier this week to find a simple make for some string that I picked up from B&M Bargains this week (4 balls for £1).
I made this little container, isn't it sweet ~ I think these might make nice little gift boxes for Christmas or birthdays for smaller bits of jewellery and this used about 1/3 of a ball of string - so apart from my time it cost me about 33p (and sore fingers).
When finished it was the exact right size to hold a ball of string, my husband was staring at me and finally exclaimed - "tell me you haven't just made a box out of string to hold string?!?!", he is very observant :)
I have been making some wrist warmers too, I am rather proud of these, I made them from scratch using my own pattern (that I made up as I went along :) ) and I am rather pleased with how they turned out, the yarn is quite autumnal too, I have a few balls left so might attempt a matching scarf.
Em, still not Christmas makes are they? Well the boxes are I guess, well kind of, by proxy... mmm must get cracking...
