Knit it, Violet!

  introducing sheldon the turtle!
Wow, I just realized I never even mentioned I was working on this, but here he is, Sheldon the turtle!

I'll get a better picture soon! My batteries are dead in my camera, and I'm not used to Kellen's. Plus, I'm in my pajamas, so it had to be an indoor pic! Pattern:Sheldon from Yarn:Knitpicks Shine Sport in Grass (left over from peapod baby sweater) and mystery acrylic- probably red heart? in dark green. Mods: I gave him smaller eyes because that's what I happened to pick up at the craft store, also, the dark green is a worsted weight, again, because that's what I had around, but I also wanted to give him a slightly plumper shell.

He was such a fun knit! His neck is a little floppy, though, despite the fact that I tried to stuff it as firmly as possible. Oh well. I was absolutely in love with the slipstich shell pattern. It was my first time doing something like that, and I was suprised how easy it is! This was also my first attatched i-cord (around the shell) and while it took a little bit of getting used to (there may have been a few curses uttered here and there) I think it's an awesome technique and I'm glad I learned it!

I'm taking a break from the other things on the needles for awhile. Here's what I plan to relax with today:
