I hope you all had a happy Easter. For my kids this year I knitted these cute little EggKins, whose patterns were designed by Chris de Longpré. I used Elann Sonata, which is a 100% mercerized cotton yarn. I received a huge bag of this yarn in a variety of bright colors from a friend of a friend and thought that this was a good project to try it out. I really enjoyed knitting these little egg animals and my kids loved them too. They kept asking me if I was planning to include something knitted in their Easter baskets. Since I wanted to surprise them, I could only work on these during the night. Fortunately, they were easy knits. I didn't make the lamb and the duckling, as I didn't have any white yarn and was also short on time.
