Free Egg Cosy Pattern

I have a little Spring knitting to share with you for Yarn Along, today.  I was searching for an egg cosy pattern and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for (an egg cosy that is fairly snug to the shape of an average egg but loose enough to pull off without burning my fingers) so I developed my own and have (gulp!) uploaded it to Ravelry as a free download - Simple Customisable Egg Cosies Knitting Pattern - my first official pattern!

I'm so pleased with the way the pattern works out and it includes some variation ideas so that you can customise it to your own tastes and styles.

I love the simplicity of the striped ones but the cute carrots have a spot in my heart, too.

Now that I have made a gazillion egg cosies, I'm working on my second Miette cardigan, seeing as I love the first one so much.  I have cast on with Tepa, one of my favourite yarns, and am using slightly larger needles than the last Miette and am thinking about not adding in the bust shaping this time for a more versatile cardi.  The colours are dreamy...

The beginnings of my Miette in Tepa and browsing modern vintage knits

There has not been much book reading this week, due (again) to my coursework but I've been reading the new Debbie Bliss magazine for Spring/Summer which has just been added to my shop and I want to knit everything in it from the Great Gatsby/Downton-esque 1920s patterns to the modern vintage tops and the picnic items.

I'm definitely adding the cherry cushion to my queue for the near future, it's so cute!

Love this cute knitted cherry cushion


So many things to knit, so little time...

What are you knitting and/or reading this week?
