Amy Rose the Hedgehog
Instructions are pretty much the same as yesterday.
Yes, the little one is going through a hardcore Sonic phase.
So what was I thinking doing with this? Haha! Knitting the New Classics by Kristin Nicholas has a pattern for something called the Vis-A-Vis Pullover (I'm sure someone on Ravelry has it up to see somewhere - I'd use R more, but the need to post photos via flickr is just more work than I'm willing to do more than once in a great while) which used Applause (bulky weight mohair, silk, rayon and wool). I want to dye my own, in separate strands and work the sweater this way. So here's the mohair, I think I'll pair it with Knitpicks silk and wool dyed more tame shades of Amy pink . . .
We're sitting in the living room and the small one looks out the window and says "Mom, there's a bird eating your yarn". Yup, a pair of titmice were plucking Amy Rose for their nest. More reasons to deal in food safe colorants!
