Easter Explosion

I've been knitting like mad for various kids' Easter gifts the last couple of weeks! Luckily, Jen came to visit just in time, and helped me wrap up the last couple of sweater/vest combos. Thanks, Jen!!!

First up are my new favorites. . . two little lambs, knit using Barbara Prime's FREE Fuzzy Lamb pattern. Yup, free! These little cuties are quick to make, and a ton of fun! The little felt egg purses came from the One Spot at Target. Love it!

I knit them using stash Lion Brand Wool-ease in fisherman and mushroom, on a size 6 needle. One skein of each color was enough for both lambs. I usually knit them up in a couple of hours, and then spend another hour and a half or so seaming, stuffing, and perfecting eye placement. . . totally worth every minute!

Next up are more bunnies. Sooo cute! Jen took these shots for me (thanks again. . . !) Also a Barbara Prime pattern, these bunnies were knit with white Vanna's Choice acrylic, Lion Brand Wool-ease in fisherman, and Encore Worsted in fox. Their dresses and sweaters are all Caron Simply Soft with the exception of the green vest, knit in Patons Astra.

Thanks so much for visiting, Jen! See you soon for your Yarn Tasting!
