|Eden & Eliot Crochet Yarn Eggs|
I made a bushel full of amirugumi toys and soon developed my own patterns. When he turned a month old, I made the first Happy Little Red Egg.
Yesterday, Eliot turned one year old! Happy, happy, birthday to my dear boy.
So here are a few other companions to the first Little Red Egg to join in the celebration. I made Happy Little Pirate Egg, Chef Egg, and Cowboy Egg - all wonderful characters with alot of personality.
With Easter is just round the corner, I thought it would be fun to have plenty of yarn eggs to hunt down instead of the usual candy variety. They are easy to make and I put the patterns in my little etsy shop. My sweet husband suggested I make enough eggs to fill a bed so our kids can jump into a a giant nest full of eggs. Awesome idea but last I checked, he doesn't crochet, so nope I don't think its going to happen any time soon.
But I think if I knit a few every year, my children will have a basketful of characters by the time they're all grown up. I can tag them by the year so they can look back and see when each little egg was made. Now that, I can do. Happy, happy!
