Now using your yarn needle, weave the yarn tail through each remaining stitch and pull it tight to close. Fasten off. 

Optionally, with a contrast color yarn,  you can make some stitches to make a star. I have made one stitch up and one stitch down a little longer (2 sts in length), and then 4 more stitches diagonally between the two previous stitches. Make them a little smaller (1 st in length). 

Place these stars randomly on the egg.

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
