Cozy Fruit?

What is the one thing that we all dislike about bringing in an apple or pear in our lunch?  It rolls around, it gets bumped and bruised.  Frankly, nobody likes bruised fruit.  So what do you do? 


You make one of these fruit cozies!  I do NOT know how to knit anything but a basic stitch but I do have a Knifty Knitter from Provocraft.  I just used the smallest loom and made a tube.  Closing off the top after I got a desired length.  Weave a ribbon through and voila, fruit cozy! You can also sew one if you were so inclined.  Even if you are not the crafty kind, I do have a quick and easy solution!  A wool sock!  Granted I would probably use a NEW one lol...but you could even dress it up a little.  Add some ribbon, bling, google eyes...the possibilities are endless!

P.S.  I have one of these made to give away to a lucky someone.  I will put the names of everyone who comments on this post into a hat and choose! I will choose a winner Feb 1st.

                        Have fun with your food!!!

  3. I'd like to know how it looks all braided! I have a little knifty knitter and I don't think it looks that cool when I'm done!

  4. what a wonderful Idea, and i wish i knew how to knit, this would be so perfect for my daughter since she doesn't like any fruit that has any marks on it...so frustrating sometimes. Thanks for all the great ideas!!

  5. Ckay....I triple loop my loom. So instead of wrapping the twice and knitting over, I wrap three and knit the bottom loop over the top two. :)
