Work-in-Progress Wednesday


Bunny bits! I need four finished bunny egg cozies by Friday for my niece and nephews. Number one was knit and finished to double-check fit - she sits atop a Kinder Surprise Egg perfectly! Bunny two is knit but all the assembly remains. Bunny three has been started. Fortunately they're a quick knit. Even the finishing doesn't take long although it's a bit fiddly ... especially the embroidery which is really not my strong suit.

The pattern is here. I'm knitting entirely from sock yarn scraps; no shortage of colour choices in my stash. I'm just trying to decide about bunny fur colours. I could make them all different if I include some grey bunnies, but I'm leaning towards another cream and another tan instead because grey just seems a bit ... well ... grey. Besides, I think grey faces would necessitate black embroidery rather than dark brown, and I'm not enamoured with that thought either.

Happy Easter everyone! Our celebration takes the form of a long weekend spent with family and chocolate. It's Work-in-Progress Wednesday over at Tami's Amis. I bet you'll find more Easter ideas in the posted links :)

Those bunnies are just to cute, I love them. My friend knit some ducks a couple of years ago for the children and I take them out each year and fill it with a kinder egg also, they still love seeing them so I know your bunnies are going to be enjoyed no end.

Cute! I just had to stop myself from casting two on for my nieces - I have too many other things to do! (Plus the yarn scraps are packed!

So cute!! I love them, but can't imagine knitting all that small stuff!
I completely forgot about WIPW! I guess vacation does that to you. I need to get a photo of my niece in her hat so I can show that off on Friday. Good thing she is on vacation here too.
