It looks familiar - where is the pattern from?

(My son was playing ball in the kitchen and spilled a glass of water on top of my laptop. I lost all bookmarks and PDF patterns!)

Ok, it's much easier to felt in a top-load machine- so, you can check the 'felting process' often.. that said..

I did live in Italy w/ a front load washer and here is what I did.

IF you know which cycle uses the least amount of water- use that (small loads) and hot water only. *I just turned off the cold water on the faucet for the cold water and remembered to turn it back on for future loads.

To 'check' the felting process.. I actually just unplugged my washer.. and after a few minutes I was able to open the door to check to see how things were going. It's not the best method.. but, sometimes the felting process will happen within 5 minutes.

AND, you know how long those wash cycles are for the European washing machines! AND, you have much less 'agitation' in the European machines- so, make sure you put something else in there for the felting to toss about with.. jeans, cotton dish cloths, (no towels- the lint can get on the felted item)..

I also put my felted item in a pillowcase and tied a knot in the top.. so, I didn't get the felting fuzz/lint all inside the machine.

Truthfully, for the next felting projects.. I saved them until I went to the states and did felting at a friend's house.. but, it is possible to do it in your machine.

I am stuck, already. I am only 13 rows in and already confused.

Okay, so I have been knitting 5 and then w&t and then I think I got up to row 12 (sidenote: how do you keep track?, I have heard of 'stitch markers'? what are they and where can I get one?).

So now my hedgie looks like this:

http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/9994/picture098tq9.jpg

So now it says "LEGS" and I have to knit 4 stitches for 9 rows, which is fine, but am I doing this right? What the heck is the bit I just knitted?
(I am one of those people who needs to visualise it or see it as I go . So I knit 4 stitches from this bit?... or am I on the wrong row and need to go to the other end and start working on 4 stitches from that end?
