Heirloom - Tomato pincushions

Doing some knoodling (knit + doodling), I came up with a knitted version of the red tomato with strawberry pincushion that everyone used to have as part of their sewing tool arsenal.

Heirloom tomatoes come in shapes other than perfectly round and colors other than red, hence the purple and the yellow pear.

The $1 pattern for the red & purple is up on Ravelry:


The yellow pear version pattern will be up soon.

DH first grew yellow pear tomatoes for us many years ago. I had never seen such a thing. After that, not one made it to the table, they were all garden snacking food.
