Ravelry in Review 9

by Cynthia

I am having so much fun getting this week’s Ravelry in Review together! I could showcase so many patterns today but am making myself stop at 7!

I thought since we are well into August, and the summer produce is in full swing, it would be fun to showcase some patterns that reflect this bounty. So, here you go, some fresh fruits and veggies for you to knit up!

This corn on the cob pattern is what started the theme to today’s post. Isn’t this just the cutest little knit?! The husk/leaves are removable. To top is all off the pattern is free! I think I would knit mine without the cute little smiley face but that is just me.

Sticking with the summer produce theme, how about some cute little baby tomato socks! This pattern is also free.

I absolutely love this little fruit basket pattern. It comes with instructions to make all the fruit and veggies shown. Ariella’s birthday is coming up and this would be the cutest gift to make for her.

Linda, from the blog Natural Suburbia (one of my favorite reads!) always comes up with the cutest patterns and wonderful tutorials. This little knitted pear is no exception. She has it available for free on her blog. I just love how perfectly pear-like it is! The handspun yarn make it even more beautiful.

How about some corn on the cob socks to remind you of summer during winter’s cold and dismal days? If I can ever find some knitting time to make myself something I think it will have to be a pair of these socks! Too much fun and the pattern is free to boot!

More yummy produce from handspun yarn in this next pattern! I just love the rustic look of these carrots in this knitting pattern. They are pretty enough to be left out as decoration, don’t you think? (oh, and this pattern is free too.)

My 12-year-old son, Logan, would disagree with me but I think homegrown eggplant has to be one of the best treats the garden has to offer. Not only are they delicious to eat but they are also beautiful. Here is yet another free pattern, this time a baby eggplant. Yummy.

Hope everyone’s summer is going great. Mine has been crazy! So much so that it is all a blur right at this moment. Maybe knitting up some sweet little summer produce will help me remember that we do indeed have beautiful summers here in the Pacific Northwest once our gloomy-gray rainy days return in about a month or so.
