Heggie Love!

Well I did not go nuts at the LYS on Saturday. Only bought two sets of circs. Got to see a Huggable Hedghog at the LYS, very cute.

Speaking of Huggable Hedgehogs someone sent in a picture of a fab pink and purple Hedgie to Trent over at Pink is the New Blog. Scroll down to the end of the post for Hedgie Love!

I finished another little kitty blanket over the weekend for Hollyarn's & Cyrnao's Creature Comforts Drive. I've been wanting to learn how to Log Cabin. I followed Cara's Log Cabin X pattern. My block is nothing amazing, I basically used up an entire skein of Grandma Ruth Stash Acrylic. I held the yarn double so it's super thick and cushy. It's not much to look at but I did learn a new pattern.

My current knitting obsession is definitely the Fiber Trends Hedgehog pattern. I knitted up a little pink body over the weekend. E, H and I went to JoAnn's this morning for Fun Fur, eyes and noses.
It's knitting up so fast and so fun and just plain SUPER CUTE! If you want to learn short rows in a fun and cute way then this pattern is for you. The directions are clear and fairly easy to understand. You will be doing short rows in no time and have a huggable little Hedgie friend in the process.

My sister has already put in a request for a Harry Potter Gryffindor Hedgehog. We are thinking a yellow/mustard colored tummy and burgundy fun fur.

I'm hoping to finish little Hedgie soon. I have a ton of stuff to felt, a bunch of coasters and a bowl.

In the meantime I'm back to knitting more Hedgie Love.
