For the holla-days I wanted to knit small things for all of my friends so I made a bunch of peachcake's ( http://pcakeknits.blogspot.com/ ) fruit stuffies to give out. I tried to give them all different faces, but I also had only one shot to make things not blobby so I ended up repeating the trusty smiley is a lot, although in hindsight I wish I had done more pirate fruits. Also, it got cut off but the surprised looking pear's stem is standing straight up.

Those are freaking adorable!
I especially love the apple and the pirate lemon!

Good job!
Question though.... were they fairly easy to knit?

Wow! That's a lot of cuddly'n'cute fruit. Brilliant knitting, too!
The winking strawberry and the screeming lime are my absolute favorites. Aww...

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Thanks everyone^^

lamamarco - I found these to be fairly quick and easy knits, taking me between 45 to 90 minutes each, depending on the fruit and my level of distraction. The hardest part was the very beginning (joing in the round with so few stitches) and very end  (working with all the stuffing in), and when increasing to 40 stitches, you have to kfb four times, not three, otherwise you have 39. Also, don't get worried if the decreases don't fall perfectly at first, on all of the decrease rounds except for the last two, there aren't enough stitches for another repeat so I just knit them and it turned out fine.
