Just gorgeous. The photo itself is a work of art. . .
"Well, mostly summer crop.
Zucchini is a new pattern I am working on, strawberry pattern is out here floating in flickr space."
Billy Boy, pudding and pie,
kissed the girl and made her cry.
When the boys came out to play,
Billy Boy ran away.
Can she bake a cherry pie,
Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
Can she bake a cherry pie,
Billy won't you tell me now?
She can bake a cherry pie,
Quick's a cat can wink his eye.
But she is too young to be
Taken from her mother.
I put the rhyme and the lyric together (a little changes made), well, it does make sense."
Knitted Breakfast! More fun knits from Knit Purr.
"A proper breakfast should provide us with about a quarter of our daily intake of energy and nutrients. HOHO...
Skip breakfast and you risk missing out on vitamins and minerals that are not always made up for in later meals and snacks.
(Does not look so appetizing though.)"

Yarn dying in Lime Green-Green mix Kool Aid & Food Coloring, originally uploaded by CassieWay.
I was looking up Easter food, and here's an image I found! More Koolaid dyed yarn~
"Yarn being dyed in a bowl mixed of Lime Green Kool Aid mix, some drops of Yellow food coloring, and some yellow Easter Egg dye."
"These 3 crochet carrots are made from 100% acrylic yarn.
Measures approximately 2 inches / 5cm.
These delicious carrots will make good toy, Easter basket and egg stuffers and kitchen decoration."
A new way to play with your food!

Handpainted KnitPicks sock yarn, dyed with Easter egg dye, originally uploaded by kathrynivy.com.
Another two skeins in different color combinations. I love these!
"Here are the newest sock yarns that I dyed with Easter egg dye. I am still so impressed with how vibrant these colors turn out!
I've put together a detailed tutorial, that you can find in the Extras section on our site. This is the best way I've found to dye yarn"
The link to the tutorial:
KnitPicks Bare Fingering Weight, dyed with Easter egg dye, originally uploaded by kathrynivy.com.
I used to love dyeing when I spun a lot. I used anything from Kool Aid to lichens to nettles, and this would be so fun to do!
Here is the note that goes with the image:
"This is the Superwash sock yarn from Knitpicks in Bare. It is very soft and took the dye very well. This is dyed with standard Easter egg dye tablets.
I've put together a detailed tutorial, that you can find in here. There are more pictures of the yarn I dyed as well. This method also works with fiber reactive dyes."

'Tis the season~
"These are Sara and Heather's Easter Bunnies that I knit with recycled yarn. All The embellishments except for the french knots are made from recycled yarn. These were really easy to knit and fun to decorate."
This is just sweet. I love it!
Here is the artist's note:
"This is a nice little piece I did this morning based on the lovely yarn going on over at rivulette's! Check this calico stuff out!
Oh I want some quite badly! This easter bunny (or bunny yeti?) is making something out of it already! Maybe a scarf?"
This is available. See my profile for information.
"I've been busy trying to make spring come early by knitting up some easter eggs. There's now a free pattern for these on my blog - check my profile for a link."
I think these look great~

Once again, I may be late, but some of the members of my Pilates class today made me think of Fred Rogers and his wonderful sweaters, and it all came back. So, I'm a little late, it being April, but it's never too late to enjoy a red sweater.
