aww this pattern is really good! i just knit one this evening, but my camera is out of action at the mo  Sad i put a little kinder surprise plastic container inside the egg and stufferd around it, with rice inside the plastic thingy it so it rattles, but i want to make a pew more, maybe with a bell, a squeaky thing and something crinkly inside so they are all different. my cat will be very pleased! Cheesy ill post pictures on my page (link in signature) when i take some photos. thanks for the pattern link Grin

thanks so much! I went out and bought needles cuz i've never knit on dpns. and I ran into a problem. I really have no idea how  Undecided  if anybody has instructions or a video that would be amazingly great! teehee i need to learn how to increase too.  Roll Eyes
There's a video here on DPNs.  This pattern is not easy to do with metal DPNs, I suggest using bamboo (I have to sit at my table every time I'm knitting this pattern to support the needles and keep them from sliding out  Undecided). 

Also, increase st options can be found here and I used the method found here.  This is a good project for praciticing increase techniques.

thanks for the links! the knitting on dpns is still so hard for me. i hope it clicks like knitting on straight ones did. then i could actually get them done by Easter.

Hi, I'm Amanda =]

I'm just getting back into this, but if any pictures are missing, let me know. Photobucket hates me.

It'll click.  When I first started working with DPNs it felt the same to my brain as doing a hard math problem.  They really grow on you though.  I just finished this project for my son that totally should have been written up on DPNs rather than knitted flat - and I was cursing ...  the ... damned ... seaming ... all  ... day... long!  DPNs are much better.   Cheesy
