Oh he is cute. The Boa is more of a flocked effect. I was going to hold it double but did not need to to get good coverage. I gave him to Allison yesterday. There was much squealing and squeezing of little HP Hedgie who will join HP Kitty.

In other knitting news I am nearly done with a 3rd Hedgehog. It's an addiction really, an addition to all things cute, cuddly and fuzzy. Third Time's The Charm Hedgie, just made that one up, is in Wool of the Andes Fog and Hush with Cello Eyelash in Magic Purple. The Cello is really long. I'm holding it double so the fuzzy factor is super high.

Third Time's The Charm Hedgie is for Tracy. I chatted with her Saturday night. We discussed the Offensive Hat for a bit and decided to go with CANCER SUCKS instead of F*&K CANCER. I'm knitting the larger size on size 7, 24 inch circs, will be moving to dpns soon. It's in Wool of the Andes Fog and Hush to match the Hedgie. I got to knit on Hedgie and the hat last night at an Oscar party. So fun.

In the meantime the Third Hedgie calls it's siren song.

The hedgie turned out great and I like the change to "Cancer Sucks"...I wrote to the designer and received the pattern, but I might make the same change you did...we'll see.

I like the change too. While I really like the F*&^ Cancer design I can see why Tracy wants to change it. Good luck knitting your hat.
