Knitting carrots

We are very casually (and with little dedication) making a play kitchen for Espen. To that end, I spent Espen's nap time on Saturday knitting up a couple of carrots to add to his pantry. I am so pleased with them (they are so cute!) that I think I'll make some more play food soon. He already has an apple and a pear and a cupcake that I knitted in various spouts of adorableness, but now that he has an actual kitchen in the works, my motivation is a little higher to make him some more.

I used this pattern from Flutterby Patch, and am seriously feeling the siren call of those chubby little dolls for our little Squiggle when she arrives. Aren't they just the kind of doll every little girl should have?


  1. What a good mama. I love mommy blogs, by the way. :)

  2. This is ADORABLE! I love them! The little piece of orange yarn coming off the end!?!?!? So cute! Thumbs up on a job well done! :)

  3. Okay, you are awesome. Knitted food for a kitchen?! That's so much better than the dorky plastic stuff - and even better than the wooden Melissa and Doug stuff (which I love). You go, Mama!

    And, I was wondering - what with all the bouts and bouts of free time I'm sure you have every day (snort) - what you might charge to knit one of those cute red-headed braided dolls with the beanie? I think my little Nackle might need one.

  4. thats cute, I plan to knit food for Rufus, just haven't got round to it. So much to knit so little time

  5. How adorable! I have just started knitting in the round And the possibilities are endless! Please show us more as you go I would love to see them!
    Blessings, Joanne
