The wee hedgehog has long been an icon to those of us obsessed with Outlander, also known as The Hosed, or Clan McHoser 🙂 Here’s a brief excerpt that explains the origin of the hedgehog fascination.
The following quote is taken from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 17 We Meet a Beggar (c) 1991 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved

Here’s our May block! Hamish the Hedgehog. He’s adorable. Have fun stitching him out!
