A year ago, possibly longer, I started knitting up a Hedgehog for my nephew. The knitting went well. The felting, not so much. The problem, the fur. The pattern called for Fun Fur from Lion Brand. Since I was trying to use up the yarn I had in my stash I just used an eyelash yarn I had on hand. Once felted, the yarn matted terribly. It was quite possibly the ugliest hedgehog ever. I put it in my, UFO pile and there it has stayed, until yesterday.
Yesterday, in a small effort to do some cleaning out I finally finished the Hedgehog.
And it makes the perfect doggie toy. Not only does it smell like wool, yummy. It also, so far, has been indestructible. Add a dog safe squeakier and voila instant Doggie Toy.
And Ginger seems happy. She love her some hedgehog.
*one of theses days I am going to have to make this with the correct yarn. It is so Cute!*
