Quickie Easter Projects (for those not dyeing eggs)

If you have some free time and some scrap yarn I found some cute quick Easter projects you could try. The patterns are posted on the internet at the addresses I've listed. As for myself, I'm working on my commissioned scarf so there will be no extracurricular knitting for me.

Knitted Easter eggs--pretty, unbreakable and no messy dye cleanup:


You put these cute little chicks over those deliciously gooey Cadbury eggs and have a fabulous Easter gift for any age at all.

This sweet little guy's not knitted but he's felted so I figured I could include him the blog.

If you'd rather knit your Easter chick, here's a possbility in a rainbow of colors.

Hope everyone at RTY has a very happy Easter, whether you're knitting or not!
Let us know if you've made any Easter projects yourselves--or if you tried any of these.

I have a friend who made those eggs and some little chicks for her children's Easter baskets. I know they're going to be delighted with them.

Mary Ellen, your bunny is darling. I love your felted critters! I was pretty impressed by your first pysanky too--you must have steady hands. And the telephone sheep? Fantastic! Great blog!
