Here is the one I am making: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kathrynivy/463343763/ It's a fibertrends pattern.

In progress and color accurate:

Finished Front:

The instructions for the paw tips arn't very clear but I think here I have them "folded" over correctly, it just says to pick up on one side of the long paw 12 stitches but it didn't say which side so I think I am guessing correctly.

It's a CRAZY fast knit, atleast the front was, even though the instructions are INSANE. Loads of bar increases, normal increases, SSK's and wraps! Nearly every row is different/unique. Somehow I knit the front very quickly in to fast night sessions.

I'm a little weary of how the hole back part attches and works but I'm just going to trust the pattern and try not to ask to many questions! I hope it turns out cute!! It seems kinda small!!

Yes, you're right. It's the outer long side of the paw. Can't wait to see how this looks when it's finished!

It looks really great so far!  They do knit up really fast, the back does take a bit longer than the front but still goes quickly!

That is really cute. How much was the pattern?

my LYS always overcharges but I think it was like $5. It seems like anything i get in that store i can get online for $1 cheaper, including yarn which adds up when you guys 6 balls of something!

has anyone finished the hedgehog?  I agree, the back takes longer than the front, but i did one start to finish all in the same day (it's in the dryer right now)
