Easter Egg Hunt: Hatched
It’s Easter weekend! I love this holiday with its basket carrying, egg delivering bunny, hopping around spreading Spring joy, celebrating rebirth. Ever since I was a child (still am really), one of my favourite aspects of Easter, was the egg hunt. I like finding things in general, but the excitement and magic of searching for eggs to fill my basket, just charmed the socks of me. I especially loved the one our local fire department hosted in Cabin John along the banks canal and river.
It’s officially spring and I have done something I’ve been wanting to do for years, I got chickens, baby ones. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long. How I have lived my life up until now without chickens? I just don’t know. They are here in the barn, all 20 of them ( I know.) to be exact. I’m working on pictures of each and everyone of them, so I can introduce you to them. You’re going to love them. And the colour… oh my goodness, the colour.
Anyway… I had this thought, in the wee hours of Friday morning. I was thinking what better way to celebrate the rebirth that is Spring with our very own version of an Easter egg hunt? I don’t think it really matters that our eggs have already hatched. Do you? Chickens hiding amongst yarn and knitting? Serious fun!
Welcome knitters, to our 1st annual Blue Moon Easter Chickie Hunt.
All across the website we’ve hidden 20 chickies for you to find. All 20 are in frames just like all the product pictures. They’re hidden everywhere our twisted brains could think to put them, all tucked in with the yarn, patterns, kits, and roving. There are circle ones and rectangular ones and square ones.
They look something like this:
Your mission, should you choose it, is to find all 20 of them, then make a list with the page you found each one on and then send the list with your full name and address to with Easter Hunt in the subject line.
Listing example: Mopsy> Obsidian or if it’s a pattern then the name of the pattern, same is true if it’s a kit.
Easy peasy right?
The very first person to do this wins a Blue Moon $100.00 gift certificate.
The second person wins a $60.00 gift certificate
After that, the next four, will get 1 skein of lightweight sock yarn in your colourway choice and a pattern (also your choice) to go with it.
You have until Monday at midnight Pacific time to send me your list.
If you have any questions please list them in the comments.
I believe that covers all the bases.
If you’d like a few hints there are some vague ones below:
Yes, I am to blame, since I am the muse of hues.
My kitty Valla should come with a warning sign, although she looks all cozy and inviting, really what lurks right below that purring calm, is fierce.
I have found my thrill with this fine luxurious goodness, I am loopy with it.
Sheep talk radio: “Look Betty, I know it’s the new fad and all, but really, I feel like such a #1 boobie, strolling the pasture in shoes. Don’t you?”
And the hunt is on!
FYI: (The picture might not be of the whole chickie. Our Jane has pond scum feet and how could you not want a photo of pond scum chickie feet?)
Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
