Easter Treats!

Hey Y'all,
Well Happy Easter/Passover/Spring! Today's post is your virtual basket of goodies to celebrate this smashing weather, the time-honored tradition of eating too much candy courtesy of the Easter Bunny, and the promise of so many exciting summer projects waiting to be knit!

First of all, pictured above: the latest Be Sweet! collection is in. I posted about this awhile back-- at Market, Be Sweet! had this awesome, candy-themed display. As you can see, these balls of yarn look like hard candies. There are six variations, all self-striping, and the label includes a free pattern for Sweetie Pie Baby Hat. This stuff is 70% organically grown cotton and 30% bamboo, and it's hand spun-and-dyed in South Africa with some of the profits going back into the community to educate the kids there. Each ball is 50g/100 yards/5 st per inch on size 7US needles.

And how about some Easter bonnet patterns:

Finally, for now, here's my favorite new YouTube video-- you absolutely MUST take a couple of minutes to watch this totally magical, knitting-themed commercial. I promise you'll love it.

That first bonnet looks like one my maternal grandmother had. Love it.
