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?
Your eggs are so cute! I always wanted to know how to knit. O, I can knit and purl, but I’d love to know how to make really intricate things. I crochet like crazy, but knit always looks better to me!
I really don’t decorate now. The boys are older and they don’t care. I have a hard enough time picking the clutter up, let alone add more!
Love to knit, and love your little knitted Easter eggs.
The Easter eggs are cute and a great way to use up left over wool.
they look very cute, I like the pastel colors
I wish I had talent like this! I don’t even sew,even though I took Home economics in jr. high school. The only thing she had us to sew in class is a pillow-just putting poly-fil in it and sewing around it.
How cute are these?! I think I may make a few next year for the kiddies.
