Spring is in the air and it’s the time of year that I love knitting little nests and eggs – they make lovely spring decorations for your home, or you can substitute the knitted eggs for chocolate ones, and you have the perfect Easter treat!
If you’d like to knit a nest and eggs, the pattern is in my book Knitted Birds, published by Search Press. There may also be a nest or two in my Etsy shop if they haven’t flown off to a new home already (not that nests can fly, but you know what I mean).
My knitting pattern for these little knitted chickens are in the April issue of Let’s Knit magazine! They are a super quick and easy knit and are a great way of using up any scraps of DK yarn that you have in your stash. They’re the right size to hide a Creme Egg inside, so will make a really sweet little Easter gift for a special someone (or you can use them to hide your Creme Eggs so no-one else will pinch them!)
I’ve been working on knitting some long tailed tits over the weekend – hoping to get out this week and find some blossom for them to sit in so I can take some outdoors photos.
