I made this for a childhood friend who is writing her dissertation on desert tortoises.  The turtle is from Barbara Walker's Charted Knitting Designs (thank you, interlibrary loan).  The yarn, which I really enjoyed working with, is Plymouth Royal Bamboo.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

That's great! I love the color, and the little turtles. I never thought you could do that! Cheesy

*gasp* I have this book! I've been trying to come up with a project to use the turtle on for months, but couldn't think of anything worthwhile. I am so making this!! It's been added to the list. The long list. Did I mention it was long?  Cheesy And ever growing?

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

I love the color and that is just so awesome! I love the turtle! It reminds me of those dishcloths. Isn't it just made out of knit and purl?

Wow, everyone, thank you so much!  The turtle is basically an ornate cable.  The first one was...an exciting challenge.  The second one I only had to rip back once.

The neighborhood yarn store deserves credit for the idea, even though their version was ribbed and made of pink Manos.  I think I'm going to have to invest in that book some day, eatyerhartout.  And find a friend who loves spiders...
