The forest needs the fire like the fire needs the tree

Pattern: Pear Apple Cozy by Susan B. Anderson
Yarn: Knit Picks Telemark (100% Peruvian Highland wool), Poppy colorway
Needles: U.S. 5 Harmony Options 24″ circulars (Magic Loop)

I whipped up two of these cuties in a week for teacher gifts. Yes, it’s a nifty way to wrap the traditional apple — but it’s also a useful fruit protector in a lunchbox, keeping bumps and bruises away from tender produce. Slip a gift card in there, and you’ve got utility and charm all in one.

The yarn was a skein left over from my Red Scarf Project scarf last year. I still have about 20 yards left, after making two.  When I was setting up for this little photo shoot, Cady Gray excitedly observed, “You made a yarn pot for an apple!”

Wouldn’t you want an angelic little preschool girl to give you one?
