My egg was made using this pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits. Obviously I took the easy way out and used variegated yarn rather than following one of the more complicated decorative options in the pattern. I plan to (some day...) make another egg, but this time I'll skip or reduce the simple knit and purl section in the middle to see if that makes the eggs smaller, more like chicken eggs than goose eggs.
I'm currently project-less and am feeling the pressure from my fellow knitters to get going. I hope to scrounge up a specific doll pattern and get to work on it, hopefully when our group gets together this Thursday. I fear the doll may go the way of my robot, which means getting pushed so far back to my list of things to do that I forget all about it until reminded by the tough love knitting group.
