FO - Easter basket and eggs
Finally done! I guess it still needs another egg, but it's good enough to put out now.

The basket was from the last issue of Creative Knitting.

After knitting


After felting..still drying


Voila!

It was Sirdar Tuscany and it's machine washable. It was a PITA to work with and I probably wouldn't do it again, but it came out okay on this.

Thank you all!
