More slipper and a turtle

Presenting... my clown foot! I just hope it felts down to the size of a normal slipper...



And as he's arrived at his new home, I shall put up the details of last week's knitting.

Pattern: Sheldon by Ruth Homrighaus
Yarn: UKAlpaca Fine DK, in natural and jade (used less than 50g of each) and some brown DK for the eyes.
Needles: 3mm dpns, 3.25mm straights and 3mm crochet hook.




He was a lot of fun to make, not as complicated as the pattern might make him seem and I would definitely make more of these in different colour combinations. Some of the green/purple and green/orange combinations on the Sheldon flickr gallery are really cool.

For some strange reason, I cant see the pics on your blog :( Hopefully, the bug will go away soon and I will be able to see everything in all its knitterly glory :)

He's mine! ALL MINE! I ride him to work everyday and I feed him hay and carrots and hats.

There's a photo of him on my blog if you can't see him here, but not of Spanner's clown shoe.

I like SM's Sheldon, but I think he does look very extra cool in purple and green if you want to make me one for christmas :)
