Pixiepurls,

Thanks for the kind words! I finished the face this afternoon. I'm waiting on some Elann Peruvian Highland wool to do the contrast color on the paws. Hopefully that'll show up this week. I'm torn between using black, or using gray (I've got some of both on the way). Gray may actually show up better against the dark purple than black would.

I like your idea of knitting a matching color with the furry yarn to avoid the mangy look. The furry stuff I chose is fairly dark, so we'll see how that goes.

I'm looking forward to seeing your progress!

My Elann order came in yesterday, and I decided to use a medium heather gray for the paws. I think it looks pretty good. I managed to do 3 paws before I had to head in to work. Oh well, I gotta pay for yarn somehow.

Here's the picture from this morning:

I would love to make the hedgehog but I need to get the pattern first. Since I am leaving Saturday for vacation I called one of the local yarn stores where I am going and they can order it for me if they don't have it.

I'm working on the back of my hedgie. Doing the short row wraps and turns with the fun fur isn't as hard as I was afraid it would be. He's really looking like a hedgehog now!

He's finished!





Well, he still needs eyeballs and a nose. :-) More details on my blog.

This pattern is just awesome. My sister's birthday isn't til August, so I have plenty of time to make one or more siblings for this guy. Hedgehog army!
