2 New FO's To Share :)

Hello blogland, long time no talk to. So during my busy time with my girls...softball, cheerleading. I have managed to keep knitting. And I just would like to share with you all 2 of my latest additions.

First off, I would like you to meet Sheldon. He's a gift for my friend Derek and his wife who are expecting a new baby boy. I'm sure he'll be loved by the baby.

Sheldon comes out of his shell but I didn't take a picture of a naked turtle. He's a little modest.


Pattern found here. I used mercerized cotton on size US3 DPN's. Pattern was a bit hard to read when it came to doing the shell. I had never done any color work before so it was like reading another language. So a little help from Ms. Vita and all was well. Also a little hard to understand from the pattern how all of the pieces came together for the shell so I just improvised.

Onto my next finished object...The Amanda Hat (free download on Ravelry).

Great quick knit. Started it on Thursday, June 26, 2008 and finished it Saturday, June 28, 2008. Didn't work on it at all on Friday though. Love this pattern! I definately recommend it. I knit this up for a store sample for the shop because it shows off the malabrigo yarn so well. Enjoy!
