Heidi Hedge Hog

I did it...finally...but not so sure I like the finished product.......check for yourself, what do you think? Now, now, I know everyone will say the hedge hog turned out just fine, but I'm not quite satisfied and thinking there is some things I would do differently should I take on this project again.                             
        


This was a fast and easy pattern. I tried the eye lash yarn and did not like it one bit. All of these fuzzy and strange specialty yarns are not always the most cooperative to work with. The good thing though is that they hide a multitude of errors and are quite forgiving. I prefer to knit the stuff up rater than crochet with it.                         


I am my own worst enemy when it comes to picking apart my work and finding fault, it is like a curse....Heidi Hedge Hog's nose just seems too big....so I guess I hurt her feelings and she tried to hide among the totes in my sewing room....


and then I found her snuggled up on the pile of my most recent knitting and crochet projects.....I guess I thought if I moved her around her nose would get smaller, ha, ha, ha, I was just fighting with myself about reasons NOT to get the seam ripper out and remove that nose!


 the more I looked at her the more that nose seemed to grow on me, well not literally mind you, but I was thinking it wasn't so bad now was it? Anyways, I will have to hide her from the doggies because this is my toy not theirs. I just want to thank Kate over at the Garden Bell for her tip on this pattern. You can find her here and it would be her Tuesday, July 19th post (of this past week) where you will see her darling little hedge hog and her link to the pattern at Tangled Happy. And just a note to Kate, I feel like such a copy cat, but that is what ya get when you go and post such cute stuff.......lol......I can't wait to steal your next idea, but in the meantime I will keep on knitting more fancy scarves for the holidays.....♥

  7. Oh I just love Heidi, she is perfectly adorable! My daughter would fall so in love with her and would want to bring her home, so we'd best not tell her about Heidi, right?!?! Wish I had the crochet/knit capability but alas, I don't - too impatient. Thanks for sharing that sweet Heidi girl with us.

    Hugs,
    Mary @ Redo 101
