Instead, Easter in the UK is all about chocolate. So instead of dying eggs I have started making chocolate eggs. And by excellent timing, I also happened to be knitting a bunny for a friend's child, just in time for Easter. So now I have a knit bunny AND chocolate eggs to enjoy during Easter.
For the bunny I used the Karel pattern by Annita Wilschut. This is a really clever pattern for a child's soft toy, because it is knit in one piece, so there is less danger of limbs being pulled off. I made mine in Plassard baby alpaca, for extra softness.
I made chocolate Easter eggs in a simple mold I bought in Finland last year. My decorating attempt was less than successful, but never mind, I used Lindt chocolate, so they are very tasty!
