I've been knitting up a storm on hedgehogs and have to take a family picture of them. But that won't happen today, so you'll have to wait for a little bit longer. But I made a good dozen so far in any kind of color variation, some of them more traditional, others plain crazy, but all of them cute. Two already found a new home, one as a thank you for yarn and the other as a birthday present, which was very well received. Anyway, more about that later.
Wait, I just found a picture of the first two I made the left one if for my younger son, the right one found a home.
In the meantime I also knitted down a little bit of my sock yarn odd ball stash. You know, those little itty bitty balls of leftover sock yarn, not enough to do something with, but still to much to throw it out without feeling guilty. Well, I have plenty. So this is what they turned into.
These mini socks that can be used as key chains, chap stick cozy, Christmas tree ornament or whatever else you might want to use them for. They, as well as the hedgehogs, are very colorful. A friend of mine from our local knitting group is taken them to a crafts fair. We'll see how people like them. I experimented with many variations in cuffs, fair isle, stripes, as well as different toes and heels and came up with my own little recipe. I hope you like them. Now back to making another fuzzy friend.
