i started this a bit way back. but, things got in the way. and sometimes i avoid knitting things i've knitted before (hello?! sock orphans ?!).
i also ran into some obstacles (ie: felting at the laundromat ... man, they have some hot water, but you cannot control the water level in the machine).
plus, i apparently used a fur yarn for the "hair" that was a bit short in 'hair length'. this made me want to felt the hedgehog more and more, so i couldn't see the garter st. "scalp" in between.
he did come out precious, though i think he has a slight hernia.
regardless, i think he's really cute, and he has an instant peer group :
the pink guy has been around since a year ago spring.
he was knitted with lamb's pride. the blue guy was knitted with cascade 220. verdict? though i don't care too much for the "fuzz" of lamb's pride (the mohair content), i think it felts (the yarn, not the mohair) better/faster. if i felt again? ... i think i will use lamb's pride. hmmm ......
