P1100390 Making more "faux Pysanky" was not on my calendar! But I had so much fun making the marker Pysanky when I was playing with different ways to decorate brown eggs for Easter, that I just HAD to blow out more eggs to make more.

I love the deep intense colors of these eggs. Only possible with brown eggs!

Last Easter when we arrived for Easter dinner with Sophia and Antonio, there was a large basket on the dining table filled with beautiful eggs like these.

As I told you, I was a bit apprehensive about how the eggs were going to appear when Lisa told me she had used brown eggs. I will never forget how gorgeous that basket of dyed brown eggs looked.

I found a free pattern on WEBS recently for a Christmas Stocking and decided to knit it for the Christmas Stocking giveaway in December.

Trust me, the stitches are much straighter than they appear in places.

I've been playing around with brown eggs this week!

Having never even considered using brown eggs at Easter, I was more than a little apprehensive last year when I learned that Sophia and Antonio had been dying brown eggs for Easter.

Turns out - brown eggs are beautiful when dyed and tomorrow I will show you Sophia's and Antonio's tricks!

Today, however, I wanted to share some beautiful brown eggs I have been playing around with - revisiting techniques I have used in the past and some great ideas from fellow bloggers.
