Easter is coming!! So, in the true Norwegian outdoorsy spirit, we decided to film this episode outdoors. Unfortunately, the weather decided not to cooperate with us at all, so we almost ended up filming this video in the middle of a snow storm. Usually, the weather is good this time of the year with lots and lots of snow and bright, sunny and warm skies, so let’s hope we have better weather during Easter week than we did last week, when we filmed this episode!
Today we are doing 2 patterns for some really cute Egg Cosies, to keep your eggs warm. These are quick to knit, so you should be able to get them ready in time for this weekend’s Easter brunch!
Here is the tutorial:[youtube id=”v9BLZMytOAM”]
And here is the pattern for Both Cosies:

We will be taking some time off this coming week, to celebrate Easter and reload our batteries. Last year, we walked on the Inca Trail all the way from the Sacred valley to Machu Picchu in Peru, together with good friends. It was so amazing, what a fantastic Easter holiday!!!
This year we are really looking forward to a traditional Norwegian Easter, up in the mountains, with lots of snow, oranges, hot chocolate, x-country skiing. We will also catch up on our reading in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine.
