awwww, a hedgehog ! yes, i finally finished this little critter that has been off and on the needles, plus multiple trips to the laundromat, over the last month ...or more .... the pattern is by fibertrends, and was knitted with a single strand of lamb's pride worsted and some mysterious fur-like yarn. i actually ran out of the furry yarn early, but thankfully did so on the underside.

the eyes are plastic safety eyes, but the nose and mouth were embroidered with a fingering wool and then needle felted.


socks !


what's a post without socks?! i feel like i've been making progress because i have not been making orphans. this pair will be finished very soon ... within a day or two (i hope).


... and this pair? complete! i have a hard time keeping secrets. a really really really hard time. don't ask why. i don't know. but, these socks, and the hedgehog, are getting mailed off for mother's day. happy mother's day mom !!!

The hedgehog is so sweet! I saw that pattern in my LYS, but it was boring brown - I like him in pink much better.

I agree, a pink hedgehog is special. ;-)

Love the autumnal-colored socks. Those are going to be fab. :-)

Love the hedgehog! he is so adorable. You need to get all your creatures together for a group portrait so that we can see them all.

I have that Hedgehog pattern and am going to get around to it one of these days....please tell me that Stuart is far far away from the Hedgie right now, I can stand to imagine the evil things he has planned for her!!
