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?
