An Apple a Day...

An apple cozy appeared in the New York Times style section recently, and at first I thought it was crazy. Then I thought that perhaps it could be a cute gift. Susan Anderson posted one on her knitting blog, suggesting it would be a great back-to-school gift for teachers. And then I had the idea that it would be a cute get-well-soon gift along with an apple card. My friend Michael helped me start the cast-on and the handle, and I knitted it like a little hat, doing a slight increase and then decrease. I looked on the Internet for hours for a caterpillar button, and this was the cutest one I could find. The wheels are a little strange but I thought that everyone would get the idea! I know it's strange to have an apple cozy, but why not make your apple cute?

Fantastic! I think yours is cuter than the original.

Very impressed with the posts!

Is it wrong that I kind of want to get sick so you can send me one? hint, hint.

Just kidding. It's cute though.
