Friday Favorites

OK, so here’s the deal . . .

Crystal says you’re probably tired of hearing about Peeps, but I’ve convinced her to let me talk to ya because this is my chance for 15 minutes of fame!!! :-)

You see, she crocheted me last week, and I was supposed to have a whole bunch of friends in different colors – but she ran out of time and now it’s almost Easter!

She suggested that I wait until next year to make my debut here on the blog.

C’MON! That’s 12 months from now!!!!!

So, here I am!

You know Crystal – she likes to embellish things.

She placed a flower at my ear.

A FLOWER???

I’m a PEEP for heaven’s sakes!!!! I look just fine – plain!

Oh, one more thing! I’m supposed to mention that you can find the pattern Crystal used for me here.

If you celebrate Easter, Crystal and I wish you a very happy one!

And may all of us have a super weekend. :-D

With hugs from,

Your Pal the Bunny Peep

Easter Eggs to Knit

When my kids were young, I used to decorate for every occasion.

Now that they’ve left the nest, I’m not doing as much of it, but I do still love to have a decoration or two – at least for some of the holidays!

Lately, I’ve been having fun getting ready for Easter with these knitted Easter Eggs. If you like, you can click on the photos to make them larger.

The pattern is from Julie of Little Cotton Rabbits.

She has very cleverly designed the knitting to fit over a little plastic egg – the ones you find around Easter for filling with candy or treats.

Of course, in this case, you use an empty egg! If you prefer, you can use soft stuffing, but I think the hard plastic egg gives a more realistic egg-shape.

It isn’t obvious in the photo, but if you look closely, you can see that the egg on the right has a zig zag design!

These are a great project for TV Time. I plan to knit a few more in coordinating colors. Arranged in a basket, they’d make a cute centerpiece; don’t you think?

Hugs,
