I've recently made a cob of corn toy that I gave to my niece. It was so much fun, I'm looking for more! Nothing specific; desserts, vegetables, etc. (:

I recently ran across a book, which I SO need to buy called "Knitting Never Felt Better", by Nicky Epstein it has TONS of knitted food items that you knit and felt. This book is also just a FAB guide on felting, you might want to check it out!

Wow, that sounds perfect! Is it all sorts of foods or just a specific type?

definitely mainly fruits and vegetables...I do remember corn and a banana, I want to say there were grapes, too...there were at least 10-20 different food items. I'm sorry, it has probably been a month since I looked through the book at my LYS...

agree with Sharlykestoknit...i have the pattern book...cool...
ah, i always love japanese creation...i think i'm going to buy their knit books...the untranslated is usually better (if not the best)...i really dont know what's in their mind but as far i see, their crafts are different...unique...
i have japanese flowers crochet pattern...very-very beautiful...
but i still have to learn how to read picture illustration in knitting...japanese uses this way not 'word' pattern...they did with crochet...:zombie::zombie::zombie:
