I'm designing...

... my own patterns for the knitted eggs/balls :) Well, at least I'm trying to. Thank you Arne and Carlos for the inspiration! Actually I've been thinking about it since I started knitting all 55 Christmas balls. I thought it would be a great idea (and satisfaction!) to have my own designs too! Easter seems like a perfect time to try my hand at it, with all that coloured yarns and cheery patterns. Why not?
My colleague (and to be precise, her mum) has presented me with this lovely book of hers - The complete book of Scandinavian Knitting by Sheila McGregor (Thank you ladies! x x x) It is a great source of Nordic patterns to use in your knitting, ranging from the simple ones to the more complex ones. I chose some of them to put on my future knittted eggs :)


This is what I recently have knitted - two new "egg shells" :) the one from the top is my first own design!


And this is what I'm currently working on:



Sounds like it's gonna be a knitting weekend for me!
