"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Looking for a sock easy pattern to cover a cast to keep toes woarm quick and easy one??

love knitted dishcloths that is pretty much the only thing I use my mom ask me what I want for christmas or my bday & that is what I say she now asked what we need for our anniversary I said more dishcloths lol I love them

In answer to my own question, I googled knit in the row below and got a great video clip explaining and showing how to do this stitch. In making this dishcloth, I REALLY liked this stitch, and the hand of the cloth it makes. I did not start in the 2nd row as the pattern suggests. I knitted 3 rows and started on the 4th row instead. I will do the same at the end giving it a border.

I have a question. In the waffle dishcloth in row 2, it says to knit 1 in the st in the row below. Do you slide off the stitch on your needle? That's kind of scary.
