Knitting For Easter

Easter is such a fun time to knit. As I create little bunnies, chicks and eggs it gives me a feeling of new life, spring is in the air and warmer days are heading our way. I Love working with the lighter weight soft feeling yarn, and the pretty pastels that get put aside during the colder season when things seem to be heavier and darker.

There are so many things that can be knit for Easter.

Like these cute Bunny Gloves the pattern is free from Devin Cole

It is a great time of the year to get some knitting in , since you can make small items to decorate with, Or as fillers for an Easter basket...Or even knitting the basket for that matter.

Not just for bunnies, chicks and eggs, how about a pretty Easter dress, bonnet or hat for your favorite little ones..

Tuck a colorful pair of socks in a child's basket . Create a beautiful headband or a hair clip .

Or knit a pretty purse and fill it with goodies or hand knitted items that you have made .
