Have you seen the new Ron Jeremy?

Not what you expected?  Sorry.  This is The Other Hedgehog,  the one that's destined for a comfy life in Washington, DC at the home of my friend, Keira.  We've known each other since 2nd grade,  which makes her my oldest friend.  Back in the day, she had a fondness for hedgehogs.  Hedgehogs and Steiff bears.  And clogs.  And wrap skirts.  But I digress.  I've been wanting to make this for her since I first saw it, and thought April 1st would be the perfect occasion. Because it's her birthday.  I hope she likes it.  But look at him?  How could she not!

Pattern: Smith, by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Valley Yarns Valley Superwash
Needles: 3.75mm & 4.5mm

Cute! I know someone who made a whole field of those mushrooms for her daughter.

Thanks guys!
Oiyi: The lace pattern on the blanket is the same as the Ishbel edging and Kim Hargreaves' Haven scarf. It was a gift from my friend's mother and I love it.
