Bunny Egg Cozy
I didn't finish this in time for Easter, but better late than never! Pattern is available at Little Cotton Rabbits, here. Her little knit toys are so cute I can hardly stand it. My cozy didn't turn out nearly as adorable as hers--faces are so hard to get right!--but it was fun to make, and this project stretched my knitting skills a little bit. (Note how I am not showing you the sewn up seams, though. Messy, messy, messy! Ahem.) I didn't stuff the bunny's arms with stuffing; they are just full of yarn ends, so they look stuffed. I think I wasn't supposed to cut the yarn after each color change, but didn't realize until too late. Oh, well. Next time!
I put away the Easter decorations today, bunny cozy included. I am so ready for my house to be bare of seasonal decorations. We will now enjoy a (relatively) sparer look for the rest of spring and summer. We still haven't had a day warm enough to open windows. I cannot wait to air out this house!
