Score: Vintage Hoot Mon Plaid Picnic Basket

My new knitting basket! 
Hoot mon! Made somewhere in New Jersey in the 1960s.

I found this little metal picnic basket at the local Goodwill. I wasn't going to buy it (trying to stay away from kitsch and clutter), but it's in pristine condition and would make the most excellent knitting basket. My children seem to think my supplies are the coolest toys in the world. The hard to remove lid will at least keep my two-year-old from running around with my needles!
