A twin for Fernie's twin

A while back, you might remember that BFF's older son wanted a Fernie of his own. Well, a few months ago, BFF's younger son hopped on board and asked for one, too.

After all, what better way to celebrate your fourth birthday than with your own Fernie! ;)

This one's a bit of a troublemaker, though. I told him repeatedly not to sit on the candelabra, lest he burn his butt. Did he listen? No. Kinda like a four year old. So they should get along great.

And he's kinda vain. Can't stop staring at himself. But you can't really blame him. If I were that cute, I might gaze into a mirror all day, too.

He's also taken to sniffing the potpourri. Lush.

Luckily, he managed to break that habit before I sent him off to live with E. I predict lots of fun, potpourri-free days ahead!

I have yet to see a Spherey that isn't heartbreakingly cute. This one is no exception.

Spherey the Third sounds so regal, doesn't it? Now the vanity thing kind of makes sense...

There's a book coming out by Rebecca Danger of Danger Crafts of VERY VERY cute monster toy knits. She has an etsy shop now and sells her patterns there. Look her up! You WANT her book!

I know I am late to the cashemere suggestion party, but trust me, this is worth it. Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label Cashmere. I am knitting the Cinder Block Socks from knitspot in the exact same colorway she used. It is the most fantastical Yarn I have ever felt. And yes I have other Cashmere yarns, so I do have a point of reference. Try it, you will love it.
