spherey, knitting books galore!

I had one other holiday knitting project, Spherey from Jess Hutchison's unusual knitted toys booklet. I added the hair on top because he looked a bit turnip-y to me and Lisa agreed and suggested hair. Good suggestion, Lisa! I made him for Stefan's stocking. When Niels saw him, he said, "you made this!" and I said that Santa asked me to make it. I don't know if he bought it. So far Stefan is completely and utterly not interested in poor Spherey.

In other knitting news, my family practically cleared out my Amazon wishlist of knitting books, and Art Spiegelman's In the Shadow of No Towers which is a wonderful book. I loved the giant board book format also.

I have several projects in mind already from these books. When I get back to working on it, the wrap sweater from last spring's Interweave Knits will get top down set-in sleeves, thanks to Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top. So many plans! So little yarn time!
