Look at Frosty




Here she is, the Hedgehog of the hour......Frosty! Isn't she adorable?! This is the first Hedgehog I have made. I am thrilled at how she turned out. This is the very first knitted toy that I have made. I am hoping to knit a few more for gifts. Frosty will be staying put at our house. She is all mine!





Here are the details: The body was knit with New England Highland Wool. Colorway- Aster. The paws were knitted with a small amount of Cascade. For the back I used 2 different yarns held together. Bernat Disco colorway Roxy Rose and Knit One Crochet Too Jam Yarn Color 737. The Disco yarn has a fantastic iridescence to it. To me it has the look of real fur. After searching two different store for eyes and a nose I decided to needle felt the eyes and nose. It's not perfect but I still think she is cute.




Frosty enjoys peaches just us much as I do. She told me to get out the ladder and start picking.




Even Cassie likes Frosty. She was a little apprehensive at first.




Aah, how sweet!



Bear is not thrilled with the new addition. He wants to know if she has a squeaker. I better make sure that Frosty is put away when I'm not home. You know, that whole sibling rivalry thing. Giggle
Thanks for letting me be so goofy. It's the small things in life right? Have a fantastic day!

I haven't seen a hedgehog knitted from this pattern that I didn't like. My favorite is the picture with Cassie (i think that's her name) . Awesome.

OMG!!!! Frosty is so cute! I never have knitted and am not sure if I could pull it off. No, wait a minute, I think I knitted (not crothched) a afghan once but it kept unraveling...the finishing step I never got. oh well. I do think Frosty is the cutest hedgehog I ever meet.

I think we should have picures of the traveling hedgehog. Send Frosty on a trip around the world. Remember the traveling gnome? Or at least a trip around town..LOL
