Fruit & Slippers

~~Sweet Little Felted Pear ~~

I'm delighted with how this turned out. Just delighted. It still smells strongly of 'lemonade' and 'lemon-lime' Kool-Aid, both of which are very nice scents; the pink blushes are from sprinkles of an Easter-egg tablet. You know, I knitted and crocheted flat things for a long time.... afghans, cat blankets, scarves, totes, lace .........etc....... before I learned to make things with curves, like animals and flowers and fruits. It's incredibly fascinating to me ~ that you can knit something with a rounded shape. As I was knitting this little pear, I was just, look at that PEAR shape rolling off my needles! I mean, as if it wasn't amazing enough you can make a flat square out of two sticks and a string, you can also make something round and soft and fuzzy.

Here's the pattern: PEAR SACHET .... you know, I am so impressed by the people who invent all these wonderful knitting patterns. I would so like to be able to do that one day.

I also felted my fuzzy feet! And they fit! And I LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!

What fun feet. I agree, the koolaid smell is a wonderful addition -- especially when knitting a fruit!

Your fuzzy feet look great!

I love dying with koolaid! My least favoirte part of the smell is the sheep/koolaid smell at the begining of dying! I love the smell when knitting with it!!
