Peeps!

Easter is my favorite holiday.  I’m not referring to the religious aspects of the day; I’ll leave that to those who are more qualified than I am in that department.  I’m talking about the leaves popping out on the trees, and anticipating the baby ducks on the lake.  I love the tulips and daffodils outside my window, and planning an egg dyeing extravaganza.  And Peeps.  I admit it, I love Peeps.  I even admit to putting them in the microwave for a few seconds, then putting hot fudge sauce on them.  I have been known to serve this for dessert for spring dinner parties.

I’ve done considerable web research for this post.  I have searched numerous Peep sites.  You have no idea how many there are.  Here are just two:

Marshmallow Peeps:  The Official Just Born Site

Big List of Peeps Links

In my extensive research, I have not found any knitting related Peep sites.  So I did a photo shoot of my own, with the assistance of my husband/accomplice.  No Peeps were harmed in this activity (though a few were eaten).

Yes, gin was involved.

Here they are!

I think it’s going to be a sweater.

I did actually knit today, on a real garment.  It’s just that it looks the same as the previous picture. You guessed it, just more rows.  I might promise to post a picture of it tomorrow just to give me some motivation to knit more tonight.

  1. Looks like everyone is making rogue. I”m in the process of swatching for rogue using a beautiful cascade 220 red. Good luck!

  2. Carolyn of Girlreaction sent me over here. I, too, adore Peeps. I wanted to knit some little Peeps, but alas, I am not clever enough. I love your knittin’ Peeps. Are you a member of the Peeps Fan Club?

  3. I LOVE peeps, too. I like them ‘hardened.’ When I was a kid, my mom (uh, Easter bunny) would make the baskets and put the peeps in overnight. They would harden on the outside to a sort of soft crunch and then wow – great eating!
    Love the knitting Peep rabbit – cool!

  5. Hi, I’m deborah. I’m a big fan of knitting and crochet. I loved that rabbit peep knitting that was very funny. where did you come up with that? I love it, reminds me of when mom used to tell me not to play with my food. I don’t know why but that comment(about dont play in your food) was very funny. I crochet “pillow mice” ( mice in the shape of small pillows)
