Q - When is an Easter egg not an Easter egg?
A - When it's Elmo's nose!
I have finally finished my crochet Elmo. Apart from the difficulties of working with fantasy yarn, he was surprisingly easy to do. However, in it's favour, fantasy yarn hides a lot of errors!
http://www.getsmitten.com/) fantastic crochet workshops to make crochet easter eggs. Despite following the pattern and being attentively supervised by Lisa my egg (nobody else's) finished by looking very un-egg shaped and very Elmo's nose shaped! It was even the right colour, somethings are just meant to be!
Much practice and many strawberry shaped easter eggs later, I managed to get it right. And with Rémi's hand decorated chicken basket we made a lovely table top decoration.
As soon as I get a new hook, work is to start on a Cookie Monster..."me like crochet ahhah yum yum yum"
