If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

Spherey is ADORABLE! My mom teaches geometry and I want to make her one as a mascot for class. Did you say the pattern is in a pattern book? Could you tell me where to order the book? He's awesome! Thanks in advance for your help!

you can order the booklet at www.jesshutch.com/booklet.  She sells out of the booklets all the time, though, and I don't think she has any more at the moment, but you can sign up to be emailed when more come in.

It was either drugs or knitting...

how did i get him to be so round?  while i was stuffing him with polyfil, i kept rolling him around in my hands (granted, the double pointed needles got in the way) until he was a nice shape and then basically repeat until desired fullness.
i used brown sheep sock yarn (i think that's what it's called) on size 2 needles so he could be miniature and adorable (he's about 6 inches standing compared to the 9" in the book (right?)).
thanks for your comments!  he was so fun and easy to make!

I finished up my spherey. He's a bit misshapen but I think he has a sweet face.

I love seeing everyone's projects here.

I finished "Kate" as well.  It was fun to knit.  I've already cast on for another.

My unsolicited advice is, if you're making these toys for a child, add a felt circle to the back of each eye on the inside when attaching them.  That way, no way can the eyes come loose.

These are fast to knit - I've made two kittens in two days.

Wheee, me too! I hope being on that site gets her even more exposure. Her work is totally delightful!
