Another redonkulous cozie

People, not since the MOST RIDICULOUS COZIE EVAR have we seen such a hilarious piece of craftmanship. Will you please check out the Apple cozie: ['cause apples need adornment and warmth and knitted leafs and buttons] More views here!

Yes, for the apple who has everything, Hilary R.

You people realize now that I'll be making one or two of these this weekend, right?

Yes, my name is really Cricket

LOL! They don't make cozies this cute for humans ...

HOLY CRAAAAAaaaaaapppppp....

wow, they've actually sold out of the cozies! i guess there was a need for them.

robin
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 04:43 AM

Actually these are to keep your apple from bruising in your lunchbox.

 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 04:44 AM

Isn't that the cozy that the apple formerly known as Prince used to wear?!

nancy
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 04:58 AM

A large LOL for that cozy, that is something else. I do not think that I will be making this one but its certainly interesting.

You guys, seriously. I can't believe anyone thinks this is cute. That apple was born as a Granny Smith, and it is inappropriate for it to go around promoting itself as a Red Delicious.

You all should really be ashamed of yourselves.

;)

Diane
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:14 AM

Oh. My. I want one. Cutest knitted item ever.

Alexis

Knitting on CO? Another reason to love you/obsessively watch you daily.

Cheryl
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:17 AM

Very cute/cool. Though it looks crocheted rather than knitted. Who cares, you ask? Well, the stickers (me) and the hookers are very particular about what gets attributed to their craft. :) Though, it does seem all the sweet, innovative stuff is crocheted. *pout*

 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:18 AM

Did anyone notice that they are SOLD OUT?!?11

 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:23 AM

Diane, perhaps Granny is just trying on her Halloween costume?

I lerv this -- tewtally redonk!

Pheas
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:38 AM

Never fear, everyone! That one is sold out, but there are more here: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5057379&section_id=5061019

I'd just added this into my favorites yesterday, so seeing it on here made me feel all special! :)

Happy Hippie
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:42 AM

Never fear, Piggalette, that is tewtelly knitted. Don't you see the stockinette stitch?

What a fab idea...AND cute! I love it that people take the time to do silly things like this! Do they make them for other fruits too?

skippy
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:45 AM

...oh yes, i see they make a pear cozy too.

skippy
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:46 AM

I bring an apple to work almost every day and I believe I truley NEED an apple cozy.
...and Piggalette, take heart, it is indeed knitted.Score one for the stickers.

Jude
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 05:47 AM

Both a sticker & a hooker here (though sticker is my first love). And that's very much knitted, on a fine gauge too.

Shame they be sold out. :( But I've bookmarked the sight and as soon as she makes some more, I'm snatching up two, one for me and one for mum.

 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 06:00 AM

There's nothing wrong with crochet! it's fun too! :) though this cutie is def. knitted, as has been said.

I'm a hooker myself... umm, you know what I mean. Teaching myself the sticks though. Definitely a different experience, though equally enjoyable. I don't think I'm ready for this yet, though... afghans only right now!

yay hookers and stickers! :D

That is just so silly. I love it.

This is totally OT-- but anyone out there who likes to surf Etsy-- what is it with them and octopi? Is it like an unoffical symbol or something? I never saw so many curly art-nouveau octopi in one place.

Theresa

About time to, after all young eyes should not see the flower (sexual)end of fruit. Now I must go a adjust the covers on the table legs. Oh forgive me lord for I have uttered legs. Mea culp mea maxima culpa.

The Honourable Gladys Anstruther
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 06:24 AM

PS, no, that's not crocheted-- Looks knitted to me. Look at the angle of the threads converging.

Theresa
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 06:25 AM

Actually, having had several fruit-bruisings while transporting my lunch from home to work, I can see the point of this! A little extra cushioning for the apple from the travails of the subway sounds like a great idea to me.

educand
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 06:27 AM

Kind of a risqué, low-cut sweater for such a young apple, eh?

Theo
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 06:36 AM

I love the apple cozies! They are fun! I think they are going to be x-mas gifts!

Lisa
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 06:53 AM

If anyone ever finds a pattern for this, please post! I want to make one. My apples hardly ever survive the subway ride to work unscathed.

well, you know kids these days... always showing off what their cross pollinators gave them.

To The Honourable Gladys Anstruther: Regarding your utterance of the word (whispered very quietly) legs. Didn't you mean limbs?

PS, your unmentionables are showing.

OMG! It's Carrie
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 07:05 AM

I've loved that since the moment I saw it!!

She has more in her shop...and if you contact her I'm sure she'll be delighted to make more :)

LOVE IT!

Carrie: Landsakes honey child, are they really?well I am off to see father O'bubblegum and confess.

The Honourable Gladys Anstruther
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 07:12 AM

But who likes warm fruit (unless it's in compote form)?? I say, let the apple freeze.

Gr Smith loooked left and right out the doorway. Then he looked across the street and saw the tail. the guy was there alright... Well there was nothing to do but head out and hope his disguise had done the trick. If not it would be applesauce for this spy.

Annie
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 07:17 AM

I'm going to spoil the fun and let the knitting ladies know that they can make their own. The pattern can be found in this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Knitorama-Great-Glam-Things-Knit/dp/1840729864

I've been meaning to make it for a while, so it's nice to know that it is actually super cute!

Alissa
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 07:32 AM

DUDE! If this was a peach, can you imagine the CLEAVAGE???

Andi
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 07:50 AM

Wait, isn't this Product Cuteness?

Kar
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 07:51 AM

Okay okay I don't get it. Why isn't the whole apple covered. Is the hole where you take a bite? IIIIII just don't get it.

luvinmalssomuch
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 07:59 AM

I totally knit one of those last spring! Unfortunately, my gauge was all wrong, and it came out too small to fit any apple that might exist on this planet. This one's cute!

jules
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 08:04 AM

OMG! I would seriously love to see that - peach cleavage, I know fruit can be *very* sexy and that would just make my week!

*falls off chair laughing*

Someone has WAY too much free time to create these!!!!

Hope they are also creating cute blankets for the babies at hospitals that need some extra love.

Most hospitals across the country have some sort of program like this. I'm in Winston-Salem, NC and we have the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center: Brenner's Childrens Hospital that has a program for new babies and children. Many people create small quilts for the children to have during their stay.

Hope the cozy "knitters" spread to all critters, great and small (fruit included)!

I actually own one of these from that Etsy store (she also makes them for pears) and they are adorable and useful. I won't eat apples that have been bruised and these help protect them. So useful and adorable not ridiculous.

SparklieSunShine
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 08:35 AM

had i had a apple cozy.
i would not have had to throw away my "work apple" this morning. which got all bruised up and battered from rolling around on my desk.
i wonder if you could crochet one? I dont know how to knit.
Or could one "purchase" an apple cozy?

liz
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 08:43 AM

HOORAY FOR ETSY!

And, of course, it is cute too :).

Maggie
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 09:17 AM

This is the new, most redonkulous sweater I'VE seen since the tree sweater AND the little sheepies in wool coats.

Oh yeah.

Ann
 |  Aug 31, 2007 at 09:18 AM

jules -- plum cozy?

Sparklie -- useful/adorable and redonk are not mutually exclusive. Besides, redonk is a GOOD thing.

I do okay with apples. It's peaches and bananas I can't seem to transport without damage. I guess they'd need some kind of little suits of armor, though. /Googling/ Nope, not yet.
