so i just had to send an update. here are the finished sock totes. one (left) is a bit taller to accomodate 2 balls for 2 at once sock knitting. the other is perfect for the second sock when you're down to next to no yarn! all from 2 flat quarters and half a spool of ribbon! too much fun. i'll be looking around for other fantastic fabric. i'd like to send a sock tote to my sockpal. see there's her sock hiding in tote # 1.
