From Cascade Yarns: 109 Tweed LE (body), Moda-Dea Zing: black and red (fur), grey scrap wool (paws) and size 11 circular needles two hedgies were born...
I used the Huggable Hedgehogs pattern from Fiber Trends that I purchased at Lambspun of Colorado.
Since this was my first "real" project the first hedge was difficult and required alot of starting over. The counting is crucial! I liked the shape but neither hedge felted very well with the yarn I used, but they are soft and have personality. Also, on the first one I picked up the "fur" the wrong way around and did it backwards-it worked but was confusing. I needle felted the eyes and nose since they were gifts and a baby is in the household.
My sister-in-law did one with color changing yarn that was very cute!
They also make adorable storage (aka hiding places) for extra yarn!!
