my hedgie is felted and now sitting in the sun to dry. I totally forgot to take pictures before tossing him in the washer.

I noticed that I used a novelty yarn that was thicker than eyelash and that his back did not felt that tightly, but he is still cute... just has a big butt.

Man... these little guys are so much fun to knit. I went out today and cruised the LYS for fun novelty yarns... I have plenty of cascade to do tons of bodies, but very little in the way of fuzzy novelty yarns.

My daughter and I came up with these three combos to start round two with:

Pic 1: Cascade 220 in a tannish, orangey color paired with Crystal Palace Squiggle. This stuff is so much fun! My daughter wants this one for her boyfriend. I'm sure he will be thrilled. The paws will probably be some dark green I have lying around.. not sure yet.

Pic 2: Cascade 220 in a lovely sand color paired with Trendsetter Joy. The Joy is mostly pinks but with some lovely sublte sand color. Contrasting paws will be pink more than likely.

Pic 3: Cascade 220 again... I have several shades of purple to choose from, I'll let my DD have final say. The novelty is Berroco Crystal FX ... this yarn has both of us very intrigued. Paws will be pink... the brighter the better. I think this will be our disco hedgie.

I need to order my pattern but haven't gotten around to it yet. I think I'm gunna make mine with darker colors so he'll look like a swatch of camo fabric.
