Hi there, my name is Sonic, and in case you didn't notice I'm a hedgehog.
Here I am in my new digs, trying to get used to all this stuff, let alone a pesky girl human!
So let me tell you how I arrived at my new digs.
*avert your eyes, she's showing me undone, and no those aren't boobs either!!* Yes, that woman that created me, she always has to show her friends how she does it. Heh, arent' some things supposed to be left to the imagination???
I feel like I'm in a mug shot...I have absolutely no clue why. My measurements are 11 1/2" tall by 9 1/2" wide in a prefelted state. *what the heck is prefelted..I'm getting a little nervous at this point*
So...here I was minding my own business, when that woman, she thought I must have been dirty because she gave me a bath...a very HOT bath! Oh, and 1 time wasn't enough, she did it 3 times!! She was grumbling something about a front loader, but hey, I was just trying to keep from becoming smaller and smaller.
Well I guess she was a bit satisfied that I was clean, and a bit shorter and skinner.
Although I do feel like I need some kind of hair restorer... she was grumbling enough when she was adding my hair, something about it being the devil.. and not going where she wanted it to.
There she goes again with that darned mug shot pose!!
She said something about new measurements that had to be taken. Something about becoming 8" by 8" and very dense...hey, I take offense to that, I'm not dense...
I'm fluffy! Since I didn't have anymore hot baths, I guess I was done. As you can see, wondering if I'll like my new home...look at all the books, am I in a library?
Chillin with my new peeps. Yo' Pasha and friends!
My new Mom, she luffs me! She was feeling sick today, so I guess I cheered her up!
And despite my hairplug look, my new Mom doesn't care!
Yeah, I'm cool and I know it! ;)
Details: (that woman made me put them here, says something like her friends will appreciate it. She has friends...geesh I hope she doesn't put them in hot baths like she did me...)

No mods, but if I knit this again..which I may cause despite his fiestiness, he's pretty darn cute!
1. I would double the fur. I tried for a little while to pull the fur up from the inside with not much luck, thus the plugged hair look. Also, maybe a longer type of eyelash yarn too.
2. I would knit the back with a color that closely matches the eyelash yarn in an attempt to further hide the plugged hair look.
It's a cute pattern and pretty easy, but some areas I had to read a few times to get the gist of it. Especially the arms and legs. Tons of short rows, but don't let that scare you. I used some plastic eyes from the fabric store, also for the nose.
