In my effort to try new things, an effort I did not know I was making, I wanted to make a tortoise from the Knitted Toys book.This has been on my to do list for years. Finally did it after I saw it in one of my online knit groups.

So, I did it. Not the best instructions but I don’t follow them anyway.

It does look patchwork but it’s supposed to be like discs and though I knit discs, they look more like squares. That’s not minor. The discs look cute.I think it’s the way I sewed them together..

I will sell it in the shop. I don’t know if this is something that I would want to do as a custom order. Actually, I know I don’t want to do that. I want it to be scrap work. It takes the time it would take to make a couple of hats so a special order with specific colors might be do expensive to offer for both time and materials. I want to try new things but trying that might be a step too far.

I will be making more pocket shawls. Five to be exact. The yarn is in my possession and I’m ready to go. Can i just say buying yarn that will come in the door one day and walk out the next is not nearly as fun as buying yarn that’s going to be hanging around for a bit.

Work on those begins as soon as I leave you here. So, I’m leaving you here.
