While planning posts for this week, I hit a snag. What knit project did I have that I could make work for H? Nothing came to mind.
Then I had the thought. Hedgehog.
This has been a project that's been on my mind for a while. But I never had any good reason to drop everything and knit one. Until now.
It's quick enough that I finished it in less than a week...
I used the pattern from the Purl Soho blog. There are quite a few different patterns out there, but this one grabbed my attention. It was easy to follow.
I used an eyelash yarn for the body, giving it that furry look. The pattern that originally got my attention did this, but that pattern could only be purchased in a booklet. Not a PDF. Which I would have had to order and wait for. Which would have been fine if I hadn't decided to do this with a week to get it done in.
Yeah, I really planned this post out 😉
I think I need to redo the face, though.
You can barely see the eyes under the ears. I'll think about it.
It turned out to be easier to knit than I planned. I may have to make these available for sale. (I have to check and see what the pattern writer said, though. Sometimes they ask not to use their patterns to make finished products for sale.)
Did you finish any blog posts just under the wire? Did you ever change your plans at the last minute?
