We have a family friend who’s going through a pretty challenging time. So I did what anyone would under those circumstances and knit her a hedgehog wearing a scarf.
He went pretty quickly — if you’re looking for a last-minute handmade gift, you could probably make him over a few hours this weekend. I used all stash yarn, some Poly-fil, and embroidery thread for the eyes.
He’d make a great stocking stuffer. Or give him as a present, along with this book about Hedgie the Hedgehog (it’s one of our favorites!).
My Ravelry notes are here if you want to check them out.
And now I must make some more. My daughter wants one…I have several hedgehog-obsessed family members (no, I can’t explain it. I can just tell you what is.) But it does amuse me to tell people I spent my day making hedgehogs. So there’s that.
