So, all my cousins' eldest kids love cooking. Which means I make a lot of knitted food. Some of it, I gave away last year but never got around to taking a group shot or posting the single items, and some I just gave away today. I finally got around to taking and uploading these pics and wanted to share. Except for the peas, the drumsticks and the fried eggs, which I improvised, all of these were made using free patterns from all over the net. They are all linked to in my project notes on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/projects/arualms?set=knitted-food, but if you want a specific one or don't have an account at ravelry, feel free to ask.

The gift basket I gave away today:


and the plate that went with it:


apples


pears


strawberries


beets


carrots


radishes


mushrooms


peas


Last year's set also contained apples, pears, mushrooms and radishes. It also had

eggplants


a pumkin


two drumsticks


a piece of cake


and an ice cream scone


I love making knitted food because it is such a great way to use up half skeins and other leftover yarn, and because tiny projects mean fast finishing (almost-instant gratification!). And all the kids love the play food (the parents are also usually happy that the softness means no risk of injury incase the kids start arguing and get into a food fight).


ETA: fixed the picture-problem

These are so cute. Too bad my boy doesn't find food interesting. He is more fascinated with housekeeping like dish washing and vacuuming. Which works for me, I guess. What a good cousin you are to be making such wonderful playthings.

aubergines = eggplants? I guess you learn something new everyday. Thanks for posting!

That's what they are called here (the color, too) - sometimes, I forget to translate. But I fixed it when fixing the pictures ;-)

Also, thank you for the nice comment.
