FO: Sheldon 01


Presenting: Sheldon

Isn’t he cute?

Sheldon wears the latest in shell fashions and
can be completely removed from his protective layer.

Oops- you weren’t supposed to see the naked pic!
A turtle moon…
Project specs:
Pattern: Sheldon from Knitty
Needles: 3.25mm and 3.5mm as per pattern
Cast-On to Bind Off: I cast on Friday night right before bed and had a finished Sheldon Monday evening. Plus I worked all day Saturday and packed most of Monday.
Was the pattern well written: Yes! Even though some of the techniques used might not be familiar to everyone, the pattern is so well written that I really think anyone can pick this up and knit a Sheldon of their own.
Changes to the pattern: Instead of attaching safety eyes I used a tip I saw on Knit Flix’s blog and made some felt eyes. I used my 3-hole punch and punched out 2 circles out of some leftover black felt from the second Poodle Skirt I made last year. Once I had the eyes positioned where I wanted them, I sewed over them with black embroidery floss until the felt disks were completely covered. This left me with perfectly round eyes that have a bit of a 3D effect, plus are baby-safe and won’t come off with repeated chewing. 😉
Will I knit it again: Did you not see I called him “Sheldon 01”? I will definately make him some friends.

As usual, these photos and others in my FO gallery on the left. Sheldon’s slideshow is here.
