Craft This! Weekly: Eating

Knitted Vegetables, Carrot and Potato

This week’s Craft This! theme was “eating”. I decided to add a couple of new pieces to my collection of knitted vegetables, in the same earthy palette. What the set really needed was a carrot and a potato, right? Yum.

Here are all of the veggies together, and here‘s a new listing for the set of five.

Knitted Vegetables

Boy Hats

I recently made a pair of hats for a soon-to-arrive baby boy.

brimmed knit hat

This wee little knitted hat has a brim! The pattern is here.

baby sun hat

I used a heavy cotton twill for this bucket hat, so the brim is nice and stiff. I lined it in some vintage dots and then threw in straps for good measure. :)

Knitted Vegetables

I made these for a friend’s baby.

play food

And now that I have a pattern hammered out, I went ahead and listed them in my shop.

knit veggies

The corn and eggplant are stuffed, but the celery is not.

handmade toy food

It’s awfully floppy for a stalk of celery, but that’s okay. :)

Oh, the weather outside is frightful..

I’ve been knitting again after what feels like a long while.

toasty topper

This hat/scarf conglomeration is for Lyra. It is from Knitty’s Toasty Topper pattern, which I adore. I didn’t make the scarf very wide in the hopes that she will allow it to stay tied beneath her chin. She doesn’t have much of a neck yet anyways.

I used some Frog Tree alpaca that my LYS was closing out and it is wonderfully soft and beautifully purple. I only had a tiny bit remaining out of two skeins.

felted toddler mittens

These wee felted mittens are for Lyra too. I used this pattern, in the 4-6 year old size (Lyra is only a year old). They could be felted a bit more but I like where the size is now, they will probably still fit next year. The hat will fit next year too.

felted child mittens

This is how they looked before being felted in the washing machine. I’ll crochet a chain between the two soon.

Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep,
And doesn’t know where to find them.
Leave them alone, and they’ll come home,
Bringing their tails behind them.
