anyone use WOTA from KP? i was thinking of ordering, but how much wooldo you use? a whole skein of cascade 220 or about half? TIA
I would say a little more than half. My first hedgie was made with Lambs Pride and its 190+ yards, I'm guessing I used all but 25-30 yards of it.

Green hedgie is done! Well ... he is knitted up and felted so not completely done. I have to wait for him to dry before needle felting his eyes and nose on.

Here are some pics:

1: Front almost done. Squiggle for fuzzy back and some Berroco Ultra Alpaca in the perfect shade of green for his paws.

2&3: Knitting done! Time to felt!

4&5: Felting done! Time to dry!

6: Separated at birth? :rofling:

I love these! They are soooo cute!

Could one of you approximate how much yarn it took to do the bodies? I think I have some leftovers that would be good for this, but I want to be sure.

my pattern says that it takes 165yrds of the main color and 100yrds of the novelty yarn, but I haven't actually done one yet so I don't have any experience to speak from.

Wow this is a super quick knit! I just cast him on this evening so I could stop looking at that tiny lace weight yarn and I'm already done with his front.


Now I need some experienced advice. The main color is Cascade 220 #7812 . and his back is Linie 85 Smash #0131 (the green/yellow/blue/brown color on that page). My question is this, should I order some brown for the paws that matches the back or use the leftover Wool of the Andes Hyacinth (which is a really royal purple) that I have in my stash?

I've got plenty of time to order something else (It's a gift for a baby that's isn't due until next year) I kinda like the idea of the purple because it would be a fun bright color and brown just doesn't sound as fun. But it also bothers me greatly that it wouldn't match the back fur. What do you guys think?

I'm about ready to pick mine up again soon and finish the back part... yours looks great! It's always better to use stash of course but if you are very particular about the color then get the other color. Just think, will I mind it after it's done?
