A friend of mine in WoW saw the original Hedgehog the Grey and offered to do a craft exchange with me. E makes little bags, and so I now have a new bag to keep my knitting accessories in!
Look at all the sheep. :) The sheep next to the bag is Ovistine, who is named for one of my most-often-played WoW characters. Then there are the sheep on the bags, and finally there's the sheep in the bag — a measuring tape! Pull her tail and you get a measuring tape; squeeze her tummy and it retracts. Somehow I have only two of these sheep, but they are of course my favorite measuring tapes.
Here's the hedgehog I knitted, in various stages of completion:
As you can see, felting shrinks a project a good deal (and here we have a good argument for using the same sheep throughout the photography process!). The pen sheep… I have no idea where she came from, but it's not the only pen/sheep combination I have. This one lives in the study, in a pencil cup, near other desk sheep. :)
Next up: Holiday (and later) scarves!
