It seems the Easter bunny is partial to crochet. I didn't even realize it until sitting down to write this post but somehow all of my Easter projects were crocheted this year.
First, I made a set of egg-rattles with the leftovers from Johan's weather blanket.
And then couldn't resist making Mateo a snuggly grey Totoro (inspired of course by Melissa's blue totoro ).
Since I was hosting Easter this year for the first time, I made these egg vase holders to help dress the table.
I got the idea from a picture I saw in a German magazine. I just crocheted around wooden rings that I found at the craft store (and had to eat a LOT of eggs that week).
I have to say, as a person who considers myself to be pretty exclusively a knitter, it's surprising to see how all these crochet projects snuck in there. But, you know what, I enjoyed making every one! Three cheers for crocheted Easter!
