Knitting Journal - a Bunch of Itty Bitty Things

So since making my very large, very labor intensive blanket, I've found that I've been drawn to very small, very instant gratification projects. Coincidence? I don't think so. :)

Hedgehog for Dene
Yarn: unidentified scratchy wool (body), Red Heart Comfort Solids (face), Sugar n' Cream (nose)
Needles: US 2, US 4Pattern: Little Oddment Hedgehog from Little Cotton Rabbits

My friend's daughter was dying for a real hedgehog for Christmas but her parents vetoed that. So I offered to make her a little (less smelly) hedgehog. I've made several of these hedgehogs (I believe this is my 5th one) and I have basically re-written the pattern and modified it until I feel like this one is just exactly how I wanted it to look.

Headphones Whale
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needles: US 2, US 3
Pattern: Knitted Headphone Whale by Brigitte Read

Made this for my son. The whale holds a pair of headphones. I don't feel like mine looks exactly like the pattern which bothers me. My tail is different from the pictures even though I followed the pattern exactly. Grrrr!
Oh well, I guess it does it's job.

Mouse for Jonece
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needles: US 4
Pattern: Toerag the Tube Mouse by Whodunnknit (FREE!!)

Now this little mouse may be my favorite toy ever. He has so much personality and is just too cute!! Great pattern! My only modification is that I added whiskers.
