Don’t know why, but I am really excited to post these photos of the finished Sheldon. Isn’t he so cute? I ended up crocheting the under-the-tummy panel to the shell instead of doing an I-cord bind-off in part so that I could leave a little hole for his tail to poke through. I don’t know, it just didn’t seem right to make a turtle with no tail.
My co-worker seems to really like him — he’s changed Sheldon’s name though, to Tucker, ’cause he tucks his head into his shell. Look at him, what a badass!
