Project 21: Apple cosies

Posted on November 12th, 2011 by Maddy - No Comments

Apple CosyI made this apple cosy for my friend Sarah. It means her apples will never be cold again, and it can sit nice and toasty on her desk until lunch time.

It wont roll away in it’s little alpaca coat, and it can be used again and again.

And some people said it wasn’t ‘practical’.

You can make this from the Guardian’s make page and it is quick and fun. I find it easy to crochet in a round, and doing this project also means this practice will give me preparation if I wanted to start doing any amigurumi crochet.

One person said to me; “don’t worry, I’m sure we can find another use for it”.

Clearly they just don’t get it.

In response to the many who would pose the question ‘Why?’, ‘What is the point?’, ‘Do you have a lot of time on your hands?’, I present three reasons below.

Three reasons ‘why’:

  1. Because apples get bruised in your bag – and that is not fair on the apples.
  2. Because even Granny Smiths get cold in the winter.
  3. Because Willy Wonka once told me “Oh little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men”.
