Happy Easter! Where’s The Bunny?

Happy Easter 2017 everybody! Happy Passover! חַג כָּשֵׁר וְשָׂמֵחַ

Back when I was a little kid in Austria my parents used to hide nests full of eggs, chocolate bunnies and other sweets in our back garden. The night before was usually full of anticipation for us: How much chocolate would be in the nest? How many eggs, what other candy? It was sugar feast primarily for us kids and we loved it.

Later, when I was the parent in charge to hide the sweets, I spent days dyeing eggs (usually very successful) and choosing tooth fairy friendly candy (usually not successful at all).

This year, my elder son is too old to be interested in such old-fashioned traditions and my little daughter spends time with her grandparents far far away so I felt a little lost. I need to hide eggs! Nests! Treats!

As nobody in this house is interested in egg and bunny search quests I needed a substitute.

Let’s Find The Bunny!

Instead of hiding Easter eggs and chocolate I put up bunnies here on knitting.today. There are three little bunnies to be found all across the site. They are small but if you spot them you’ll find a secret knitting pattern hidden behind them.

If you happen to find one of these bunnies – click on them.

The bunnies will disappear and hide in their secret nest by Monday evening again to spend their time until next year, so better look and find them straight away!

Thank You, and Happy Holidays

I’m very grateful to have you as a reader here on knitting.today and hope you’ll enjoy spending time here in the future as well.

Thank you and have very nice, peaceful and joyful holidays – no matter which religion (or none at all) you feel home in.

PS: If you found one, let us know by leaving a comment – but psssht, don’t tell where! <3

PPS:I’ll share screenshots of the three hidden bunnies on Tuesday morning to let you all know where they were hiding, and how many people were successful in finding them. There’s three bunnies but all lead to the same knitting pattern so if you found one, congratulations and no need to look further! Happy Easter!

    Guess I don’t understand. I clicked on the three little bunnies I could see and thought I saw a face of one on a vase, but nothing happened and they didn’t disappear. Guess I’m not with it.

      Did you find a bunny in the wild – not the ones in this post? If you click on a found bunny there’s a knitting pattern hidden behind that will open when you click on the bunny … so far, 16 people have been successful 🙂

      I hid three bunnies in three different posts here on knitting.today. If you happen to find one, click on it! <3

    She’s given you a hint, if you see it. The bunnies will be found in amongst text. Text is searchable. You can find at least 2 bunnies this way.

    I just spent an hour or more looking all over the site including tutorials, books, patterns, etc. and haven’t found one bunny. With so many pages, a hint or two might help. I’ve already explored most of your site in the past but am saddened by not finding one bunny. 🙁

    Also, just FYI, when viewing your site on an iPad, the list on the left for likes, Pinterest, email, etc. overlaps the pages interfering with reading.

    Found all three, after I got so frustrated I had to walk away. Once I got over being annoyed, I gave it a good thought, slapped myself in the forehead, and said ‘duh’. I had made it so much moredifficult than it needed to be. Thanks for the pattern…and the earch. lol!,

    I think I looked at almost all pages in this site. Did not find a single bunny. Many interesting things though. And that annoying social media bar on the left that I have to click out of the way for wach new page. Happy Easter! Frohe Ostern!

    I found 2 bunnies, but I got the same pattern from both. At least, I think they were 2 different bunnies. I will probably keep looking, you have a lot of interesting stuff on your site! Thanks for the pattern. 🙂

    Maybe it doesn’t work on tablets. I get lots of adverts but very little of anything else. Certainly nowhere there are bunnies hiding.
