Hedgehogs

My mother's thing was for owls, my aunts was mice and mine seems to be frogs and hedgehogs.  There is just something about hedgehogs whom I first encountered in the pages of Beatrix Potter's classic, Mrs. Tiggy-winkle.  So I just had to make Smith by Ysolda Teague.  I of course made a large one.  Next time I would not use the summer tweed but it was what I had on hand but I love the effect and I can see that I will potentially have a family of hedgehogs.  The pattern is quiet addictive.
