I’ll randomly pick one, as I never kept a knitting journal and so I don’t remember in which order I had finished knitting them.
Today I give you something cute – Sheldon the turtle.
I made it a year or so ago for a baby boy of my co-worker. I was intrigued by the construction of the shell – simple yet so effective.
Can’t remember how much yarn was needed to finish this green fella, but it wasn’t a lot.
I did not bother checking the gauge, I like turtles of all sizes ;o) and I am sure the recipient did not mind neither.
Knitted on 4mm needles with a different shades of green acrylic, Sheldon came to life.
I gave him lovely dark brown eyes and only a couple of months ago I realized that the poor thing never got a mouth! Uppsss…
I did however name the turtle and “tattooed” the name on the shelf.
I think Sheldon found a loving owner and started looking for a new pattern for a cute little knitted toy.
There are few of them in my Q even now:Hearts by Anna Hrachovec - Mochimochi
Sheldon by MyGurumi
Stuffies by Ysolda Teague

even though I made only one more knitted toy – Bubby, a.k.a Miś Przekliniak.
Knitted from a odd ball of chunky gray wool on 5mm needles this one was a super fast to knit.
He’s all mine! but he lives in the living room –keeping an eye on our TV set ;o)
Have a nice weekend!
I will probably spend it playing computer games as the weather is “gorgeous” ... or I will think about a best pattern for these beauties:
Piece of beauty sock yarn Yummm :)
