I am starting to feel like shawls just aren’t my thing. My first effort (with this pattern) was thwarted by Knitting Gremlins, who somehow added stitches to my work (and made it look weirdly half-chewed). My second effort has been crushed before it has even got started. SEVEN stitch markers needed – I think I’ve got one…somewhere. Oh well, not irredeemable but not something I can start today.
So, a natural progression from a shawl is (of course) Easter Bunnies! Both Boy#1 and Boy#2 have taken a shine to these little ‘Egbert’ delights, and they are nice and easy to make. The materials came in a little kit attached to April’s edition of Let’s Knit, and I have already made the jumper, head and roll-neck. I have taken the wise decision to pre-empt any scuffles over who doesn’t get the pink one and found some blue yarn to twin with the green #notjustaprettyface.
