I am FINALLY knitting Sheldon (after many many months of wanting to make him, fully knowing that if he knit up easily, I would want to knit a legion of little turtles!) ~ if a group of cats is a clouder, and group of monkeys is a troop ... what's a group of turtles? Just curious.
He is coming along nicely, and is not nearly as difficult as I imagined him to be (hence the long delay between bookmarking the pattern and actually taking up the needles to cast on). I am about 70% done, and am only working on him when the mood strikes.
I am thinking he is adorable, and, despite having started him as a possible gift for one of the nephews for Christmas, there are plans afoot to keep him just for myself! I made him intentionally in a colour combo that I thought would be easy to give up ... but I am enamoured (sigh ... Ohhhh, my sweetie Sheldon!).
