Thanks to some inspiration from the good knitters at the PurlBee, I've knit a nest.
Isn't it fun? Instead of stuffing, I've used dried lavender blossoms in my eggs. This nest will ultimately perch in one of the walk in closets, perhaps the one where much of my yarn is stored, as a deterrent to moths. These first two eggs are knit from Manos del Uruguay's Serena, a lovely yarn that would make a fantastic little baby sweater. I'm going to knit a few more from Blue Sky's silk/alpaca blend.
