I've been off the knitting wagon for ages and ages (a year, anyway) but suddenly felt the need to dig out my needles again. And this is the result!
I started out with the apple, which I knit up in about an evening. I was really pleased with how it turned out, and Espen (its intended recipient) loves it too. He likes to pretend to take bites out of it, and thinks it makes a great ball.
Then, because the apple was so quick and satisfying to make, I decided to make a pear as well. It was equally quick and easy to make, although I'm not quite so delighted with its looks. Oh well.
If this pattern holds, we should be looking at an entire fruit bowl by the end of the week. We will see!
