FO Friday: Quilliam

Yay!  Finally I have not-secret FO to share with you!

The other day (Friday to be exact) I was sitting at my desk, looking for any excuse to avoid doing my homework.  I was perusing Pinterest (here’s mine), looking at food and yarn porn, trying to be inspired and then I saw this cute little picture.

Pattern by Little Cotton Rabbits

And I was insta-inspired to create my own version for my friend Wesley (remember the tie?) who recently adopted an albino hedgie he’s named Quilliam.

Wes and Quilliam, the O-riginal

I didn’t follow the recipepattern, but rather looked at the picture and generated my own version, making it up as I went.  I used stash yarn, mostly from a big bag of random, vintage yarns from the thrift store (I’m pretty sure the white was handspun…) and I’m very pleased with the result 🙂  Especially how seamless and clean the little feetsies are.

Meet Quilliam the Stuffed

I gave him to my friend as a surprise and was excited when he was instantly excited about it (its always such a warm fuzzy in your belly when your knitting is appreciated, isn’t it?).  We took the two Quilliams out this weekend for them to bond and enjoy the sunshine, one was considerably more mobile than the other.

playtime!

  1. That has to be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ve always wanted a hedgehog and both Quilliams (what a cute name!) are so so so cute.

  2. Cutest. Thing. Ever. (And yay for making up your own pattern as you go! So much fun when it works, and it clearly worked here.) I really love the shot of both Quilliams in the slide. 😀
