It's a Blond Hedgehog!
It turned out to be a blond instead of an albino hedgehog. And yes, those are eyelashes you see. The leaf is strategically placed, because this hedgehog has boobs!
This was going to be a practice piece, and it turned out rather cute, except for the puckering of the tummy after it was felted. I'll pay more attention to the tummy increases on the next one I knit. At first, I embroidered the eyes and nose, but I didn't like how they turned out. The pattern says they could be needle felted on, something I didn't have any idea how to do. But, after a google search, I figured out what I needed to know. I had to have a special needle. Of course, I went out to buy one right away. All for the eyes and nose. And eyelashes
