Easter eggs - the sequel

Having made a few of the googey-eyed eggs, I decided to amend the pattern to make covers which fit a small chocolate egg (Cadbury's creme egg or similar).
Here they are.

The problem is that my cupboard now hides a couple of dozen creme eggs. I wonder how long they will stay safe?!

Easter Bunny and the Googy-eggs

A great big Thank You to Kim Lapsey from Woolly Toons for her free pattern and for allowing me to sell my little crew to raise money for my daughter's volunteer project with the International Citizen Service.

I love making these little guys and hope to make a few more before Easter!

They can be purchased and/or ordered from my NuttyKnitter's Etsy shop.
Please come and browse.

Woolly Toons Easter Bunny

Well, I did promise myself some Easter projects.
I started with crocheting this this delightful Easter bunny. You can find the pattern in Woolly Toons' blog.
The pieces were quite easy to make and although assembling the face was a bit fiddly (I will ask my daughter to do it for me next time), it was a real hoot seeing the little face come to life!

Now I am in the groove, I think I will add a few eggs to the collection ... and perhaps another bunny or two.

I am feeling particularly self-righteous, as I am still counting this as part of my stash-reduction.

Using up my stash - next update

Having found some thicker Aran yarn, I made a number of simple hats.
They are adult size, but one size pretty much fits most teenage/adult heads.

These Dennis-the-Menace fingerless gloves with flaps are very nearly finished. I might just keep these for myself!

Now my winter knitting will be on hold for a while. It is nearly Lent, and with the spring and Easter approaching some serious Easter knitting will commence soon.
Watch this space!
