My family generally had lamb for Memorial Day, as we spent it with the grandparents who raised sheep. Thanksgiving was always at great aunt Allene's house-on my Mom's side of the family. Christmas Eve with Dad's parents, then Christmas afternoon we went to the other grandparent's. Easter was always at my mom's mom's house and it was always ham. I associate ham with Easter because of that. Now that we've all gotten older, and most of the hostesses have passed on, those traditions have died too. And since there was no ham to be found in my freezer, we started a new tradition... lamb. Okay, I don't know if it'll be a tradition, but it sure was good. Not as good as how my grandma used to fix it, but I think I'm improving.
I was inspired by Resweater to make these little eggs. I used scraps from my baby slippers project, so the kids thought they were slippers the entire time. I wanted to make more from another sweater, but I just didn't get to it. Maybe next year I'll make some more. They sure are cute.
