Keeping our eggs warm

I had so much fun knitting these adorable little egg hats. Almost as much fun as making the small - for me - pom-poms for the top, though I still wanted the pom-poms to look oversized for the hats, just as I would a full grown hat for a real head.
 These are the egg cosy caps from Jessica Biscoe's Knitting Smitten. I used all sorts of unknowns from the wool basket, as long as they were white or a Christmas red and vaguely dk. And rather than jab myself with numerous little sticks I knitted these on a long circular using the magic loop method. I think P may need a boiled egg before swimming
