Easter ornaments

I am very sorry for how quiet this blog has been all spring. What can I say? Something came up :) But even though I haven't felt like updating here, it doesn't mean I haven't done anything. Quite the countrary! I actually have so much to show you that I don't know where to start. But perhaps it's best to start at the beginning, i.e. with my oldest stuff. So therefor: an Easter post in June!

For Easter one of my colleagues at work had found yet another ornament pattern by Arne and Carlos, you know those knitting guys from Norway. This time it was a pattern for Easter eggs and balls. And since our museum is a very handicraft-orientated museum, I was asked to knit a few ornaments to decorate our porch. So I did.

Pattern: Påskeegg by Arne & Carlos (found in Finnish in Suuri Käsityölehti 3/2012)
Yarn: random cotton yarn from my stash
Needles: 2 mm

I actually knit five of these, but only four of them is shown in the picture. The last one was a blue round ball with a red Easter flower on it.

Then, last but not least, a photo a little bit more appropriate for this time of the year:

And this time, I'll be back soon! Promise!
