If the women of Purl Bee have anything to say about it Easter will be no less sweet if you forego chocolate bunnies and jelly beans at your house this year (not that we're recommending that). They're sharing knitting patterns for these precious chicks and miniature eggs.
Whitney has posted all the instructions on Purl Bee (bloggy home of Purl Soho). If you don't have time to do both, how about one or the other? If you don't knit perhaps you can use this as inspiration for making your own chicks and eggs from fabric or paper.
