A Giant Hedgehog


I came across the photo this morning, posted on Fiesta Yarns’ Facebook page. After a bit of research, I learned that the original pattern was a happy accident, credited to Prick Your Finger designer Rosemary Haddon (shown below).

Accident or not, I think this pricky hedgehog is the coolest way to store knitting needles I’ve ever seen.  It definitely puts my fabric-covered Pringles can to shame….  and I want one!

National Pig Day

March 1 is National Pig Day.  According to, this day recognizes and gives thanks to domesticated pigs.  For today’s post, I thought it would be nice to display some pigs created by our own YARN-A-HOLICS.  We’ve got you covered from Babe, to Porky, to Angry Birds, and more.
