Meet Sheldon

This is Sheldon. And admittedly he is a bit homely, but in the cutest way possible I hope. He was pretty fun to knit for the most part, although the finishing was quite tedious. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out, but if I could do it over again, I would use smaller needles. Mine is knitted loosely enough that you can see the stuffing, so I think a tighter knit would work better. Here are the details...

Pattern: Sheldon
Designer: Ruth Homrighaus
Yarn: Cascade 220
Ravelry Link

One more thing to share. When we had lunch last week Jessie gave me the most hilarious and unique baby gift: temporary baby tattoos. With a dad like Jeramy, it only seems appropriate. My favorite tats are the spiked pacifiers and pirates with the words "say aaarrghh". Check them out:

I love Sheldon!! He is adorable, and not the least bit homely.

Okay. Jen. I want BOTH. Seriously.

I understand I'll never get a sheldon, as he was so much work for you and you would never do another one. Nor can I knit.

BUT ... I'm sure you can find out where I can get a sheet of baby tattoos!!! Tell me! You know I'll actually use them!

(I'm getting my upper arm finished 7/15 and then I'm getting the outline of my COMPLETE SLEEVE on 7/18! OMG. Finally! A sleeve!!!)

Very cute! I never have the patience to knit things that require that much finishing.

I LOVE Sheldon!! I had put my knitting down (I'm trying to teach myself) but I need to pick it back up. Sheldon is a good goal!!

My Hubby bought Guitar Hero last week and I had never played it before and now I can't stop. It is really awful - I can't get anything done!!

I totally need to get those tattoos. Every time we go to the beach, I turn to the ChickieNob and say, "let's get some tats this time" and she replies, "I just don't think so."

OMG, I think Sheldon's adorable. You are a seriously good knitter.

LOL, the baby tats are hilarious!!
