Just in time for Christmas!

Well… life with a baby doesn’t leave much time for knitting. We are always busy going to groups, catching up with friends and of course the everyday routine of feeding, playing, napping and cleaning. In fact, now that she’s crawling, there’s next to no time.

However, since the summer, I have been slowly knitting a hedgehog for her and today I finally finished – just in time to wrap up and put under the Christmas tree! It was a pattern from the Woodland Creatures book that I used to make my snail, frog and owl that you’ll see in some of my old posts. The ‘spiky’ yarn was a little tricky to knit with at first but once I got going it quickly became easier.

Really I should have finished it last week, but I had the silly idea of knitting a hat for my friend’s newborn daughter. I cast on last Friday and was visiting her on Tuesday
morning so I had to work quickly. Luckily baby hats aren’t very big! Anyway, I finished it with time to spare and she was delighted with it. Here is a very poor picture of it. Now to decide what to knit next…
