Appley goodness

There's something weirdly amusing about waking up in the morning and spotting a weird face on a knitted apple... its cheerfull because it serves no other purpose in life other then to amuse.
Its nice to accasionally knit things that have no use. Many times, a knitter chooses a project based on its practicallity which is good in its own way. Its lovely to actually use things you make. But when you make something without a real use it becomes more about the process and more about enjoying the knitting then the end product.

That and he's just so darn cute! :)

Yarn: Natures Palette sock spring green color (much brighter then in the photo, no natural light around here.) and angora oddball for leaf and stem
Needles: Crappy metal DPNs I picked up for a dollar a looong time ago 2.5mm
Finished size: about 4 inches wide at the widest part and 3 inches high

This is absurdly cute, and I love that you used luxurious-looking yarn to make something as simple as a stuffed apple. So lovely!
