This post is inspired by a friend of mine, Wendy. Wendy is a fantastic knitter, but she has a little quirk. She almost exclusively knits toy food.
I know! How fantastic is that?
She makes big picnic baskets of food, cornucopias of food, full Thanksgiving dinners, and an array of “fresh” fruits and vegetables that would make a greengrocer (ahem) green with envy.
Let’s spend today talking about knit food, in Wendy’s honor. (And because knit food is ridiculously cute!)
You could always go the healthy route, and knit up some lovely produce:
Pear-fecto! by Susan B. AndersonMushrooms…
Knitted ‘Shrooms by Abby Kroken
Heirloom Carrot by Sara Hills
Peas in a Pod by Hansi SinghBut sometimes you’re in the mood for something a little fancier. A nice plate of sushi perhaps?

And, of course, there’s always room for milk and cookies after a delicious (knit) meal.

Have you ever knit food? Are you going to now? (I might- these projects are just too cute to ignore.)
I don’t understand knitted food. This is not to say that I don’t think they look FANTASTIC (because they do!) – I just don’t understand. Same with those plastic fruits that your grandmother used to keep as a centerpiece for the kitchen table? Yeah… not my thing.
I get that. I think it’s one of those projects that don’t have any actual use, but are fun to make. My friend makes them as new baby gifts- to be used as play food, which I think is a great idea.
