Meet Shelly the tortoise

Shelly is a GossypiumTestudinoidea or cotton tortoise. She now lives with my brother and his wife and is lovingly cared for by my 6 months old niece.

Pattern: Sheldon from Knitty winter 2006

Yarn: 2 skeins Garnstudio muskat

Needles: 3.5mm rosewood dpn

Notes: Not the best yarn and needle combo; Shelly is a little bit too see-through. It was a bit difficult to get the right size opening when attaching the i-cord edging. It seemed too small so I made it larger than in the pattern but it turned out a little too large. There was not enough of the light purple yarn so one of her legs are mostly dark purple. I’ll probably make this again for someone else.
