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!
