Fruits and Veggies

It's getting to be Farmer's Market Season here in Portland.  Time to knit your fruits and veggies!

We have a nice stock of cotton yarns that would be just right for these kinds of things.  Ann used Tahki Cotton Classic for these two, but Plymouth Cleo DK, Cascade Ultra Pima, and Classic Elite Sprout and Seedling would be great, too.

There are currently nineteen pages of free food toy patterns on Ravelry for knitters and crocheters.  Wouldn't these be ideal summer projects?  Quick little things with cotton yarn...just right for the warmer months.  And I know my kids would love a whole garden of veggies for playing.  Realistically, I would need to make at least two of everything.  I had better find some green yarn and get knitting.
