the logic behind the egg obsession

You may be wondering why I bothered to knit 6 eggs. Here's why ...

We have chickens.


They range freely in the back yard and lay their eggs in the garden. Which was working well until the very hot weather, when we couldn't find any of the eggs and assumed that they were off the lay. Until one day a couple of weeks later when we heard a chicken crooning deep inside an overgrown garden bed.

So I sent Olive off investigating ...




and she found ...

EGGS!

Understandably, Olive gets a little excited about eggs nowadays.

I love it! I just love it!

We have chooks too and we have so many happy times with them... I love them so much... How exciting to find a whole nest full of eggs!
