Easter has come and gone, the house is a mess and yesterday i managed to get 3 more Easter eggs done while we were at the In-Laws for Easter dinner.
Project: Happy Easter Eggs 🙂
Pattern: Easter Eggs by Whitney @ The Purl Bee
Made for: Me and I put one in my mom’s and mother-in-laws baskets. I actually would like to make some every year in whatever yarn scraps i have and continue to put them in the baskets but who knows maybe next year something else will “tickle my fancy” 🙂
Yarn: Leftover Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Multieffekt sock yarn,
left over Louet Gems Sock yarn in the pink, in yesterday’s post and the purple and lime green egg is leftover sock yarn from Karen, she used it to make my socks for the last Sockapalooza. I love how the Lana Grossa yarn is a pre-patterned sock yarn-none of the eggs i have made with that one are exactly alike.
Needle: Size 3 Double Point
Notes: I loved this pattern. It was easy, quick and fun. They are worked in the round so there is no seaming!! They are the perfect size and i can’t wait to make more next year. Since i was using self patterning sock yarn i just went with the basic egg recipe but the pattern has great pics and directions to embellish and make other versions of the eggs. So save this pattern and make some eggs next year-i wish i had found them earlier as well then i would have made a whole bunch of them.
So, remember the practice birthday cake i said i was making over the weekend-well i did it and boy was it a learning experience. Details and a picture tomorrow.
Hope you all had a great Easter. Ours was really nice. Little Man went egg hunting in the snow again. Here’s some pics if your interested. The past two Easters have been fun with the snow but i am really hoping next year is without snow.
Tonight i am hoping to stuff and seam my Fuzzy Lamb 🙂 We could have another FO soon.
