Description from book:
I learned everything about babies from my mom, who always knew exactly how to make a baby laugh. With all of the grandkids, she would stack plastic nesting boxes or cups and then let the child knock them down. Babies get so much fun out of this, and of course they’ll do it over and over again.

When a baby knock the stack of my knitted nesting boxes down, it won’t be quite so loud. I used plastic mesh and fabric to finish off the inside of this simple project and to make the boxes sturdier. Garter stitch looks great from both sides, so you can leave them unlined if you choose. An added bonus is that the boxes are beautiful and can be used for storage in your knitting studio or around the house, not just for baby entertainment.
