Once upon a time, I thought I did not like beets. I'd only ever had the kind that came out of a can, and i distrust things that come out of a can that are THAT colorful.
Then I discovered roasted beets, and came to my senses. Beets really are an awesome vegetable:
So I knitted one for a friend, who loves beets so much she plans on getting a beet tattoo! (She'd probably love that beet capelet, too, but my sewing skills are not up to par so this toy will have to do).
Beets are great from a visual standpoint - I recently discovered there are gold beets and even candy-striped beets, so I might be making some sisters soon. Thanks for looking!
