  1. actually this would of helped alot, i just finished a project for my child development class and the goal was to protect a hollowed out egg shell for a week i knitted mine a sweater but it was no where near as cool as this one props to whoever designed this

  2. I like to make little sweaters like this as Christmas tree ornaments with scraps of yarn. I have quite a collection started! This will be a cute addition.

  3. Egg Sweaters? Why? With that said this looks like a great little project for skein ends. I think I will try one and attach to my key chain.

  4. Very complicated i forgot what working means in knit wise!!! YIKES!!!

    BTW I am watergoddess1998 but not logged on yet!
