picking up my new hedgehog

What would you suggest on how to pick up my new 8 week old girl, I have read about letting her go onto a shirt or something and pick it up like that... but how can we pick her up with just our hands, she rolls up and huffs a lot when we first tried, which i know is normal, but id like to know the best way

you should then dispose the blanket as soon as the little hedgie gets more comfortable with you.
While it is good to handle your hedgie "hands only" also, I don't think it's important to ditch the blanket. I've had my hedgie for two years and I still have him sit on a blanket when handling. You're bound to get pooped on a lot more without one...
