Anybody Want to Knit a Sheldon? (the turtle, not the webmaster)
 
Hi all!

I discovered Sheldon on knitty.com a few months ago; he looks like the most adorable little thing :heart:! Would anybody else like to try and knit a Sheldon with me?

Oh, I've been wanting to knit Sheldon for months! He's so cute. Unfortunatley, I have to knit an "emergency" baby shower present for a friend that will take the next few weeks since I'm a super slow knitter.

Maybe I can do Sheldon in August!

I'm really hoping to do this, just for fun - my kids are 4 and 5 year old boys and and we have a million stuffed animals around here already but I may just have to make a couple from stash yarn for them to play with. I love how the shell comes off.

Wonder if this would make good vacation knitting? Hmmmm. We're going on holidays next week and I was planning to bring socks along, but I've finished a few pairs of socks this month already and am a bit socked out at the moment. Something different and cute might be just the thing.

OH MY!!! THere are so many Sheldon's on that site. My mother loves turtles. I may have to make her one

That is too cute!! I am definitely knitting some of those, but I've already spent my yarn budget for a bit. As soon as I get the yarn for this I'm IN!

He would be a fun stash buster... hrmmm... I wonder how sock yarn looks

I won't have access to anything except a Michael's this weekend. Sooooooooooo, if I buy Lion Brand yarn, what type would you recommend, since I am totally out of loop when it comes to yarn type. Would it be DK or worsted or what?

If I can put my hands on the right yarn, I'll give it a go.

Thanks.

The yarn it recommends is sport weight, and I just haven't bought any of that yet so Sheldon will probably be a stash builder for me.

I have been wanting to knit him for a friend that LOVES turtles!

"Unfortunately" she wants me to knit her a Harry Potter scarf! (I haven't even made myself one yet!) I will make her a Sheldon too, it just may take me a while!

(I am a new knitter, slow knitter and have too much stuff I want to make - darn job taking up all my knitting time! :lol:)
