I made these a while back because we found out we had a hedgehog visiting our garden and I was fascinated by the wee guy. Or girl, it’s hard to tell.
Sadly the visits stopped very abruptly late this summer, and I hate to think what might have happened. With any luck, it has just changed it’s habits because of a lady hedgehog nearby.
With it being mid November now, it will be next spring before there is any chance of another sighting. Until then I will just have to keep my fingers crossed, and maybe make do with a few more crocheted critters instead.
My son often admires the hats I make, but will rarely keep one on his head for long. He was like that as a baby but I was hoping he would grow out of it, especially if I let him help with the design. He requested this one and was most helpful with the choosing of the colours, buttons and googly eyes.
This one is a robot, although it didn’t look all that robot-y until the ear-pieces went on with the little antennas. The yarn is a soft grey aran-weight that I had in my stash, and am glad to finally use up. I will not be beaten by this enormous stash of yarn!
My boy prefers most of his clothes to be loose rather than snug, which means this hat could probably fit me…if only I was brave enough to wear it 🙂
