Sheldon la Tortuga

Guess who was out for an adventure today. Yup, it was Sheldon, Chiquita's tortuga plushie.

Yarn: Tahki Cotton Classic in 3726 (lime) and 3764 (holly)
Supplier: The Knitting Room
Needles: US 4/3.5 mm
Pattern: Sheldon

Chiquita was so anxious that he be done that when I got up this morning she was sewing on his legs by herself. (And she actually did a pretty good job.) I finished the i-cord on his shell and embroidered on his eyes, and then they were off to adventure. He is really cute, but there is a reason I don't do many toys. There was so much detailing and finishing work even though he is small!

Oh cute! Didn't you polish this off in about a week?

Very cute - especially posed in the greenery like that. No wonder Chiquita was so anxious to have him done :)

There's nothing like a new friend!
