WIP Wednesday… Knitted Easter Eggs

This is my WIP Wednesday post, knitted Easter eggs, I have been working on a pattern today and I am almost finished… I have been knitting in the round working with the magic loop, this is such a lovely way to knit in the round, it has revolutionized my knitting, let me tell you!
I have so enjoyed knitting this little egg. I have knitted it with a purple Merino and a rainbow Mohair yarn for the striped area. It was really fun to knit:) Tomorrow I will be posting the pattern for everyone who would like to knit up some Eggs for Easter:)
Such cuteness, I know, they are just adorable, their mama has abandoned them and we are looking after these 9 little ones. Our children are in their element, they have given them all names and I have been told that we will be keeping every one of them… Yikes! 🙂

Another reason why I love Wednesdays, besides WIP Wednesday, is that this is the morning that our knitting group meets. It is such a wonderful time we share, we are a group of mamas who love to knit, we sit and chat, laugh, knit of course and learn new knitting techniques etc… wonderful 🙂  We missed you today Heidi, looking forward to seeing you next week:) Heidi has a beautiful blog, if you have a chance, stop by and see her lovely tutorials:)
See you all tomorrow with the Easter egg knitting pattern:)
Warmly
Linda

    When my girl came to visit, we were eager for her to learn knitting (she’s been crocheting adorable animals, but I wanted to share what I’d learned). Of course, she shows up with this book that is COMPLETELY outside what I’ve been doing – knitting everything, all these tiny animals, in the ROUND. I hadn’t done that for a decade, not since I made a thousand Christmas Stockings for the family. So I had to sit down with the book and re-learn the techniques.

    I thought I was going to be able to capitalize on my new and wonderful supply of loop needles – but it turns out that you can’t work in nine stitches on a loop. So I was stuck with three on three needles – which is NO FUN. Oy, no fun. You’re working with 3.25mm needles, stretched thin and it’s nearly impossible to see what you’re doing, even with reading glasses. So I am VERY excited about doing eggs in the round with the loops. THIS, I want to learn!

    So happy to have found your blog – always nice to find another down to earth knitter (but is there any other kind)? Loved your tutorial on eucalyptus dying; have wanted to try some dying myself (I recycle sweaters for their yarn). Anyhow, will be following, and so happy to have found you! Erin

    I want to knit some eggs soon too! Wondering what nest Heather is talking about… perhaps I missed something…

    Hi Renee,
    Thanks for stopping by:) Heather is talking about the knitted nest pattern in my sidebar. There is a free pattern there:) I am going to post the easter egg pattern today. My hubby came home quite late from a business trip last night, so I though I would leave the egg pattern for today and spend some time with my hubby love:)
    Warmly
    Linda

    Thank you so much for the knitted egg tutorial. They are so cute. But I am most happy I checked your BLOG out just so I could see all those cute bunnies. If you lived anywhere near me I would be on your doorstep right now asking to sit with the baby bunnies all day 🙂 Lovely!

    Oh my, Linda! The bunnies are so cute. You had the entire household here in a swoon over them!!
