Back to Cute and Fuzzy
Faces are a non-toxic fabric paint, just sort of globbed on as the last step of the project. Some excess fuzziness may need to be trimmed off.
I'm happier with how the Cascade 220 version turned out, versus the blue where you can still make out stitches. This was a relatively simple pattern to follow (FiberTrends #228), provided you can handle repeated short-rowing, and knits up quite quickly. I can see myself making up a bunch more of these before the Granite State Knit-In next June, when the NH guilds collect for Precious Pals. I suspect that eyelash is going to be selling for a song, soon, if not given away (wink). The pattern calls for worsted weight felting wool and eyelash for the fuzzy back in the quantities listed above, perfect for using up leftovers, particularly if you want hedgehogs of colors not seen in nature.
Fun to do. Use up the eyelash!
