Have you seen the 'Jean Greenhowe' hedgehogs? They're just as cute, and a little easier, I think? They're from her knit book - Knitted Toys published by Hamlyn.
These hedgehogs? I had seen them. I like them and these the best. They look more like "Hedgie" from The Hat. I'm going to get over my cheapness and purchase Debbie Radtke's.

I was gonig to make alligator scarves for all of the kids in the family and I stocked up on Wool Ease for them but I don't know how many I will get done. I've become a selfish knitter. I want to make things for others but I'm still new and there is so much that I want to make and I don't have a lot of knitting time. I am going to make the dog a felted square to snooze on. Don't know why. She just likes to lie on things. She will choose the chair that has a sweater tossed in the seat. One time I got home from an interview and she was on the bed while I changed. She got up from where she was and moved over onto my suit. I want to make Julianne some socks even though she only wants scarves and a sweater dress from me. I don't know if I will get a dress done but I'll look into it. I might make a small felted bag for one cousin. That's it for Christmas and knitting!!! All of my other knitting time is my sweaters!

I will have to make a proper list for Christmas. So far I have only thought to make the coat for my daughter. I have half the back done and it is so getting on my nerves so have had a break from it for the last couple of months. The kids go back to school next Tuesday so will start on that again. Have a quarter of an Alligator scarf done for my son. My brother is visiting at the moment and has requested a pair of thick socks for work so am trying to figure out what sort of yarn is the strongest. Have a pattern for fiber trend slipper boots for kids but think I will buy the adult version and make some slippers for the in-laws.
Probably do some wash cloths for my sons teacher.

I will join this knit along, currently on the needle is an afghan for youngest son and his girlfriend. She is recovering from rolling the SUV she was driving recently when she was helping a friend move. She was bruissed up a bit and lots of little cuts from the glass . She had to have her hair cut due to glass in her scalp and blood that stained it.
I have the border and one repeat of the pattern done so far.

I will join this knitalong. I joined last years. I already started my brother's sweater. He actually wants the same sweater I made him last year, the cambridge jacket from Interweave Knits, Summer 2006 He loved it that much. I'm about 80% done. I have the sleeves, back, and left front done. I am about 1/3 done on the right front. Since he showed that he is so knit worthy, I am upgrading the yarn from last years patons merino to 100% cashmere. (he took it to get dry cleaned and he wore it almost every day to his office ) His co-worker emailed me that he wanted one too.

2. I am also making my twin another skirt. I am making the bell curve skirt from knitty, winter 2007

3. for my little sister I'm making convertible mittens from fall 2008 vogue knitting

4. for my best friend I'm making the seascape stole, knitty summer 2008

5. my boss's secretary has been wanting a scarf forever so I am making some type of lacy scarf haven't figure out what yet.

6. I'm making a newsboy hat for my grandfather

7. Baby sweater for best friends baby

8. little girl sweater for best friends daughter

9. hat for little sister fiance

10. something for grandmother. don't know what yet. she is very feminine so not sure but she is also practical. maybe placemats? I saw a knitted sunhat which was beautiful which she may like I may try.

11. boyfriend gets nothing. he never wears anything I make him. boo

12. mother i'm hoping a sweater, but she loves scarfs. I will be tired of scarfs by then.
