FO: Bunnies!

I didn't intend to make Easter baskets, but I got inspired at the last minute after I found cute little baskets and came across the pattern for these little egg cozies. A little extra time, some extra yarn in the stash bins, and three adorable nieces for inspiration, and I was off knittin' some bunnies!

Pattern: Bunny Egg Cozy by Kawaii Crafter
Yarn: Tahki Cotton Classic in 3001 White (from stash) and scraps of pink and grey yarn also from stash
Needles: US3

Talk about instant gratification. I was able to find random bits of yarn in the ol' stash bins and these knit up so quickly- I made all three in one afternoon! I don't know why plastic eggs would need cozies, necessarily, but that's really beside the point. ;)

Unfortunately, it slipped my mind to take pictures of the assembled baskets before we gifted them away (duh), but in the event you want to make a baskets for a 20 month-old (or three of them, as the case may be), here are some things you may put in each: a tiny stuffed bunny rabbit, plastic eggs filled with little toys or organic cheddar bunny crackers, a mini box of raisins, a chunky cardboard book about colors or numbers, a mini rubber ducky, and of course, an egg topped with a bunny egg cozy!
