FO: Easter eggs! *now felted*
I am in love with ]this pattern! It is so easy and so fast and so fun! I plan to be making more in different yarns for my boys' Easter baskets.

The first one I did in Manos Caribe on size 7s. It looks a little wonky in person - kind of like a bumpy pear! I should've done it on size 6s, though I think it still would've had some bumps b/c of the thick and thin yarn.

The second I did in Malabrigo Indigo on size 6s. I like the size of it better, and it is less bumpy than the first one, though still not as smooth as I would like.

I really want to find out what yarn Curly Purly did hers in. They look so smooth. I have some old WOTA that I'm going to use for some solid color eggs and maybe some striped ones.

One thing I really liked about the pattern was that I had to learn a new increase to do it - Knit Left Loop and Knit Right Loop. I would've had no idea what to do (the pattern just said "paired lift increases") if it hadn't been for Amy's awesome page on increases and of course her videos.

It is insane how much I enjoy making these little things. I'm obsessed!

The eggs are cute. I should make some for the easter baskets I felted.
I looked at the blog where that pattern came from and she states she used Mosiac Moon yarn.

OMG! I was at the LYS and they had a basket with knitted eggs in it! I was wondering how they did that! Thanks so much! Your eggs are gorgeous!
