A Knit A Week

Easter Knits for the Royals
All of these patterns came from the amazing
book, Itty Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson.
I started this tradition last year, when I made the sock monkey
for the Prince's basket, hoping to distract him from
the lack of candy.  It worked so well for all the kids
that I did it again this year!!


A little hippo for Princess #1 out of
leftover Socks that Rock sock yarn in the
Wonderful Goodness and Mr. Greenjeans colorways.


A stripey snake, complete with slithery tongue
for Princess #2 out of leftover Misti Alpaca
sock yarn.



A reversible bluebird/egg with a little nest for Princess #3.
How cool is this pattern????  Love this.
It was made out of scraps of Cascade 220.


And last, but not least, a little "Biscuit" puppy for the Prince.
He is made out of scraps of Cascade 220 and other
stash finds.

I adore these, as I can imagine your royal court is adoring them too. ☺ Nice job! I am so jealous of all the cuteness and talent!

ummmm, you know I am OBSESSED with hippos right? :)
Hint, hint, hint...(I know, like you have the time, but if I could somehow transport your talent to myself...I would!). You're amazing.
