A quick box

Just a rapid omiyage for P, holding the bootees for his sister, whose grandpa says she'll arrive tonight or tomorrow. Lightly fulled PHW. Garter stitch square with slipped edges for the base, picked up around edge and purled 1 r, then stockinette with last st of each side purled to define the corners, some garter around the top with double decreases at the corners to curve the top in. It feels very good in the hand. Drove me crazy not to add more detail and color, but this needs to appeal to P, not me!
