Sheldon the Turtle




I love this little turtle. I knit it for my niece for her 2nd birthday. I couldn't believe how hard it was to find a book to go with it though. I've got two more almost finished for my girls and two more in the works for two of my little friends, hehe.

I love the turtle sooo cute! What a great gift idea! Where can I get the pattern?

Wow, this is very lovely! It reminds me of my childhood companion Myrtle the Purple Turtle. My Mum knitted her and I have been looking everywhere for a turtle pattern. Yours is just beautiful. Did you design this yourself or did you get it from a book etc???
Thanks for bringing back those wonderful memories.
