hedgehog family................



A few weeks before Christmas I stumbled across a perfect knitting pattern for a family of the cutest hedgehogs you will ever see. If you pop over to one of my favourite blogs little cotton rabbits you can see for yourself. If you are tempted to have a dabble you can buy the pattern here

I knitted my own little family and then took them to see Kate for a visit, they seemed to settle very well into their new London surroundings and were very reluctant to come home, and in fact they all asked to stay.




Jake loves the baby hedgehog it fits perfectly into his little hands and he loves to carry it around with him, it was almost lost on one shopping trip as it's hard to hold a baby hedgehog when you are wearing mittens. Jake takes two little toys up to bed with him, usually two small cars or trains but now baby hedgehog accompanies him every night. I think I might have to quickly knit another one to have as a back up just in case it gets lost.

I hope you like my little hedgehogs and they are so quick and easy to make .............I miss them so I think I need to knit a new family.

I have been overwhelmed with all the comments I've received since coming back, it's so lovely to hear from good friends and some new ones - thank you all so much your kind words and encouragement mean such a lot to me.

Talk soon x

  2. Hello Sue, aren't they just darling and a very good plan to make a reserve baby hedgehog for Jake, just in case. I can see why you are missing them too, a second family sounds like a grand idea xx

  8. I love little hedgehogs and used to collect them years ago. No wonder they found a new home as I'd have been reluctant to let you leave after seeing them too! think I might have to have a go at making a little hedgie family too.
