This weekend I have been
eating mini-eggs preparing for Easter….
I’ve been working on a little crochet basket/bowl inspired by designs in this lovely book, using some pretty Rowan pink handknit cotton from my yarn stash. The pattern starts off with a few rounds of simple trebles (UK) to form the base of the basket, followed by some rounds of bobble or popcorn stitch to form the sides and double crochet (UK) to finish off.
Today I made a floral lining out of a scrap of Liberty Tana Lawn “Betsy” that I purchased from EBay.
To be filled with eggs from our chooks:
Thank you ladies:
Or Easter delights:
I think after Easter, my little crochet bowl might find a nice home in the bathroom or bedroom as a tidy for bits and bobs:
This weekend, we’ve also been enjoying the pre-school puppet show and getting Easter tattoos:
And I’ve been trying on my new sandals:
With fingers crossed for some sunshine instead of the wintery showers and hail that the UK has been experiencing this afternoon!
Have you got any Easter projects on the go at the mo?
And knit some more of my big project…
Happy Easter crafting!
