One pear on its own is a lonely thing.
Pears belong in pairs, obviously.
These two were knitted with exactly the same number of stitches, just different size needles and different yarns. Isn’t the difference in size amazing? The larger one is made from wool from this skein knitted double strand with the yarn the other pear is made from. I’m not sure if that makes sense when I type it out. The two yarns were knitted together, although the pale yarn is so thick that you can barely see the thinner yarn. I was attempting the Lifelike Shading again. God I’m boring even myself now. The smaller pear is made from the thin golden homespun yarn on its own and teeny tiny dpns.
I like the little brown leaf.
The green leaf not so much.
Should you be inclined to knit your very own pear, I kind of tweaked a version of the eggplant.
