Belated Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  So we decorated eggs.....

Set the table for a fabulous Easter Sunday brunch with friends and family...

Endured a hilarious easter egg hunt complete with winter parkas and hurricane force winds (sorry no pics).  We finally come to my deadline Easter knitting for my babes.  Easter bunnies for my kiddos and a pink button accessory so my kids can tell the girl bunny from the boy bunny.

A purple jumper for her and a red hoodie for him.  It's a fantastic pattern with more clothes for the rabbits to wear.  I was informed by a certain five year old that they really need socks because their feet were going to get cold.  Oh and wouldn't it be fun if they had hats with holes for their ears.  Oh and mommy could you knit....   I'm sure you get the picture :)

I used this pattern, scrap yarn and had lots of fun.  Well I had fun once they were done and there were smiles and thanks from my kids.  During the actual knitting? might have been able to hear a few naughty words from my bedroom late at night while I knitted as fast as my hands/abilities would allow to finish them.  Honestly it wasn't the knitting that was difficult it was the faces.  I don't even want to tell you  how many times I cut out wonky nose and mouth lines only to sew them back on just as wonky as they were the first time. 'Sigh', hopefully my embroidery skills will improve with time and practice.  Hope your week is going well!

You know what? They are great - really really great. No wonder the kiddies are so enamored!

They are adorable!!! Embroidery is a bit tricky on a knit surface, but gets easier with practice :) I'm sure there will be more bunnies in your future!

Love your pretty Easter eggs. I generally try and do that each year, but this year time just slipped by so I particularly enjoyed yours!

Darling bunnies! I wouldn't even know know where to start to make one. No knitting skills whatsoever. Maybe someday I will discipline myself and learn.

Wonkiness and knitting are, unfortunately, frequent friends. But they turned out fabulous! :)

Oh, they are soooo cute - really! You are such a good mommy, making those for your kids. They're awesome! (I'm all, no, I only knit for ME, ME, ME. And some more ME.)

The bunnies are so cute. I love the clothes and all the detail.
Too bad there are no Easter parka pictures...the picture in my mind is a funny one! Even here in California it was a cold Easter, though admittedly only sweaters and jackets instead of parkas.
