And now back to your regular knitting content

Now that I finally feel well enough to knit, I can't stop!

I've made many things, actually, though some need some sewing to be complete, and will post those soon. But first, something I've been meaning to knit ever since I first saw it: Knitty's Sheldon!

I mean, he's just so cute. A turtle! With a big head and a removable shell! Squee! But I never got around to knitting him until now, for a friend's daughter's birthday. My friend loves turtles, so I thought this would be perfect.

And he did not disappoint:

I even followed the directions, and used the yarn called for: Knitpicks Shine Sport.

And here's the famous removable shell, removed!

It's a...


A perfectly healthy, beautiful, active little girl! We're thrilled, not least because I really wanted to make the Viking hat with braids!

So you're wondering who the winner is, I bet! To decide that, I made a list of all the comments in sequential order in Word. Then I removed everyone who guess boy (sorry!), which gave me a list of 36 sequential names. I then went to the random number generator and it picked #28, who, according to my list, was Cronnity Lady!

Congrats, Cronnity!

Those of you who picked boy -- don't feel bad. I was CONVINCED it was a boy, myself!
