Grid Egg front

Another pysanka for you today. I’m not so pleased with the front of this one – it’s a little boring. I had some blobbing and sort of ran out of ideas about how to cover it up because I was concentrating so hard on the plan I had for the long band around the egg. As for that, I like the idea and think it came out alright, but next time I try it I’m definitely going to implement it differently – it turned into a huge pain in the ass, and I didn’t quite keep track of where I was putting what color like I should have. I’d also love to figure out how to avoid making the grid in white first. I was originally going for a stained glass sort of effect, but the white kind of ruins that.

Oh well, live and learn!

    I’m just now getting caught up on blog reading… as always, I’m so impressed at the pysanky! They seem so labor-intensive that I’m in awe of how you do so many.

      Hahaha, don’t be too impressed – this is still from the batch I finished in March! I’m WAY behind on making some new ones. The eggs I have in progress are starting to float in the dyes already from being out so long… But thank you very much. This comment is pretty funny, because I actually JUST commented on your latest FO post that I’m equally as in awe of how you manage to get so many knitting projects complete – they go sooooo slowwww for me!
