I know your supposed to kit it loose, its on a larger needle then the yarn calls for because it felts better if its loose apprently.

I'm making a pink and purple one too! Also, I am making one for my dad to put on his desk at work and it will be orange and navy because that's the university of illinois colors where he went to school. I am also planning on making a lime green and purple one for my friend... so much to do!

i was picking out the yarn (i had lys owner pull out the pattern for me too) and she asked what i was making. the colors my dd was holding were pink, yellow, and a heathered lavender/grey. i said hedgies and she was kinda surprised at the color choices it was great! i am going to take them with me when i go to knit night on thursday! i just finished the first 3 rows of the back... i am going to stitch in the eyes and nose, then back to working all those short rows *sigh*

i also just knit and felted a hot pink sheep! have to photograph and post in whacha knittin? forum.......

Ok, I am just about to start a hedgehog for my friend's birthday next week and was wondering if you use the same yarn from the front of the body to knit with the novelty yarn on the back. Or, if the novelty yarn matches the yarn on the paws, could you knit with that on the back? I wanted to know what everyone else did!

I used the paw color yarn to carry with the novelty yarn.

I'm almost done with mine, I'll post pictures tonight.
