My love affair with spring is in full bloom this year and is evidenced here by this quick little knit. A fuzzy nest of pale blue eggs is exactly what spring is about, delicate beauty and budding life. Unlike all of our practical knitting concerns, like warm hats and machine washable baby blankets, this project is perfectly frivolous. Perched on a mantel or a windowsill, it will simply make you smile.
To achieve a nest-like fuzziness, I used Lorna's Glory, a blend of wool and mohair. Its hand dyed color sways from a rosy copper to a greenish lichen, just like the wild medley of a real nest. For the eggs I used three different light weight yarns (Manos del Uruguay's Serena, Blue Sky Alpaca's Silk Alpaca, and The Fibre Company's Canopy) in delicate shades of blue and teal.
