Sheldon was so excited to be finally all done, that he decided to pose in his birthday suit (thankfully, he was inside ... what would the neighbors think?)
-- but he won't be doing that very often (I overstuffed his shell, and he's a little hard to get back in there, and I can't have a 'nekked turtle running around the house when T gets home!)
Pattern: Sheldon by Ruth Homrighaus
Yarn: Patons Bumblebee Baby Cotton, Sweet grass and Daffodil colours
Mods: No alternations to the pattern ... but next time, I'll definitely knit the increases and decreases on his face tighter so his stuffing won't show, and stuff him a little less firmly all over, so he will fit into his shell better
Again?: Definitely! I am seeing making some of these for gifts, and a few just for fun for me! A quick, easy knit, once I got over my fear of single chain crochet, and stitching his limbs on. I love him! He needs a girlfriend ... soon.
