I'm a little bit behind with my Christmas knitting and I'm still working on a Sheldon turtle for my stepson. When I first saw the pattern on knitty.com http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTsheldon.html I thought it was fantastic. Now that I'm working on my first Sheldon, which is also my first attempt with dpns, I'm becoming increasingly enamoured! Everyone should have one of these!
