Ted and Tina Turtle, stuffed crocheted animals

| No Comments

Size: 8 inches tall x 8 inches long x 6 inches wide (each)
Colors: Paddy Green, Light Avocado, Brown, Yellow, Off White, Black (Red Heart)
Pattern: Ted and Tina Turtle by Sheila Leslie
Book: Annie's Crochet Newsletter, July-August 1985
Hook: G
Date: May 2005

In April, I took the pattern and some yarn to work so I would have a project to do during Friday lunch hours when the hook and needle arts group meets. However, since the pattern requires keeping track of the number and types of stitches and the pieces are done "in the round", it was difficult to keep track with the distractions of other people in the group. So, I brought what I had done so far (only one shell and one belly) home two weeks ago. I didn't have a chance to pick up the project until Saturday, but I got Ted Turtle done and almost finished Tina Turtle. Today I finished Tina's hat, eyes, and smile, and anchored her head and Ted's backward a bit more.

They're really cute! So easy to do too! For now, they're both sitting on my desk at the college next to the window.
