Faberge' Egg Cosies

Being in a Spring state of mind where all things having anything to do with Easter are very appealing to me, I am still working away on little bunny items and egg cosies in between the baby blanket I am crocheting. Also being a big fan of Jane Brocket I purchased her book The Gentle Art of Knitting the very minute it was available.
Nestled amongst the lovely pictures and inspiring prose of this wonderful book are so many gorgeous patterns it's hard to decide where to start. I knew the moment I saw these little egg cosies I would have to get some needles into action on these as Spring approached though! 
I actually made these for my knit night girls and gave one to the girls who came last night. They were thrilled, which made me so happy! I still have two more to give to the ones who couldn't be here this week. I just love the bead work on them. I did each one a bit different and had lots of fun with it. I think they make a pretty little Easter adornment.
After all ~ It's the smallest things that fill your heart!

  1. Those are adorable. Have you thought of opening up an Etsy store, Danette? The crocheted items you make would probably do well there.

    1. Thanks Brenda! I actually had an Etsy shop for a little over a year that I closed about 3 years ago but have been considering starting up another one. Right now I sell my items at a local shop. Thanks so much for the compliment.

  2. Adorable. What a good and generous friend you are. I love Jane Brocket, too. One of my all time favorite books is the UK version of her book: The Gentle Art of Domesticity.

    1. Thanks Eugenia! I have that book as well. It's one of my favorites. This is a different, newer book. You should look for it.

  4. Hi Danette,

    I really, really, admire anyone that can knit like you.

    I usually give up half way through, although I do have a finished teacosy.

    Im sure your girls would have been over the moon with their egg cosies.

    cheers

    1. Thanks so much Fi! I really, really admire anyone who can paint like you can!!! And a finished tea cosy is nothing to snif at Girl! The girls did love them. Makes me happy to make things to give to my friends and family. I love putting a smile on their faces!

    1. Thanks so much Kar! I am strongly considering another Etsy Shop. Might take me until May or June to be ready to open one up. My rheumatoid arthritis is worse than it used to be so I have to take periods of rest which slows my productivity down! Thanks for the compliment. I was NOT at my best in the pics. Just coming out of a 3 week sick in bed ordeal. Thanks for being my newest follower, Old Friend! I am delighted!!!

  7. Thanks Eugenia! I will do that. Tea cozies are one of my specialties. I used to sell them in my Etsy shop I had a few years ago and I have sold some in the local boutique that sells my goods. I will go to Happy Loves Rosie right now!
    Have a great weekend My Friend!
