Those are great! I love the scarf. Are you giving the scarf to a male? Because I think it would make a wonderful man's scarf. Good classic color as well. The hedgie is adorable! -Ve

Wow! Thanks for your kind words :woot:

Although the wool does look masculine in the photo, it is actually quite girlie in reality! It is Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK, which I had bought for a jumper for my DH but it wouldn't have been right for a man! So I am knitting a cardie for my Mum with it instead.

The pattern is a Knitting Daily one by Ann Budd which I found in their pattern library. It is really easy to do, even though it looks complicated, so I am thrilled with it, and your comments make me feel even better!!

Thanks guys :cheering:

It's a great pattern isn't it?? Mine worked out at only 4" wide, so thinner than the pattern says but I think it suits it. Hope you have fun - I really enjoyed knitting it!!

aww thanks for all the lovely comments, they really are encouraging :happydance:
I took the hedgie along to a craft group I have recently joined on Tuesdays, and he was so loved they would like me to do a lesson and show them how to make him!!! I was quite taken aback, what with being a new knitter and all. Plus most of them are quilters and cross stitchers, so maybe I can get a few knitting hahahaha!!
