Which came first, the chicken or the egg-hat?
Well, in Pretty's house, the Egg-Hat clearly came first. . .12 of them, in fact! Of course, once a knitter produces 12 hats for eggs, the knitter also feels the need to display the art, like so:
But this knitter realized, somewhere around hats eight and nine, that she had no pretty platter or other such dish, upon which to display her eggs! So, what do you think she did? She bought one, of course. . .(enter the Chicken)!
Yes, yes, she knows that this is a rooster. It is also a whimsical, 2-quart casserole dish, with a wire basket for carrying. It is really quite lovely on it's own, but it is SPECTACULAR when it holds a dozen hatted eggs, fresh from our favorite farm!
Now that Pretty has a grandchild, new holiday traditions are afoot! I am just giddy with the thought of a little Peanut asking, "Gramma, can I help you get out the Easter chicken?," someday!
I hope that you have some pretty things about your house this spring, and I hope that the big questions in the universe (Chicken or egg? C'mon! Which is it?) don't stop you from smelling the flowers around you here and now.
Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
