Which one is real?

Pattern: Beet by Norah Gaughan Raveled here
Yarn: Berroco Comfort DK – Lovage 2761-61yds, Rabe 2754 -50yds, Teaberry 2730-29yds,

Beetroot 2760-25yds

Needles: US 4 (3.5mm) & US 6 (4.0mm) knit pick’s harmony interchangables.

Mods: I did not do anything different unless you consider threading pipe cleaners through the stems of the leaves.

Are you ready?

Facts to remember: That the pattern might suggest something not possible like stuffing the body of the beet with stuffing and a squeaker after finishing the body. I placed the squeaker in the beet after the straight knitting portion. It might have been nice to have a casing that leads from the stems up the leaf so that pipe cleaners can be threaded through so that they have the stiffness of an actual beet with leaves.

Things I Love: How little yarn this takes. The fun photos that i can take with this piece and what pictures will be taken by our zany friends when they get this gift.

Reaction of the recipient: This is to be determined. We are giving this as a baby present to our wedding photographer and his wife who is a chef. The baby is due in June so we might have to wait till the baby is born.

Do you think it tastes good?
