Yeah, I'm not good with getting the gauge right when I'm knitting. Even if the yarn and needles are MUCH thicker and VERY different than indicated in the instructions from littlecottonrabbits, a little voice inside my head still tells me "Aah, it'll work out just fine if you pull the yarn really tight" (the little voice inside my head speaks with an Irish lilt. I guess I've been watching too much Conan O'Brian lately). So, I ended up with an easter egg thing that's a size somewhere between a softball and a soccer ball. Ah well.
