A Crochet Tortoise



I've found a pattern to make a crochet tortoise!

I'm crazy about tortoises at the moment, so this is definitely going on to my to-do list ready for any spare moment (particularly if I need a break from my computer). I'm in the middle of making crochet squares for a summer jacket, but they will just have to go on hold while I make myself a new pet - once I've got hold of some green yarn, anyway.

I'm already much too busy right now, and the last thing I really need is to take on another project, but hopefully this one will be quite quick (and just-for-fun so it doesn't have a deadline). And this pattern is just cute beyond belief!

Just checking in Rachel after you left a comment on my blog. Wonderful to have connected as your blog is a real inspiration. Enjoy this crafty distraction it will probably help you relax away from the other projects. Love your photographs. Will check in on your writing projects when my visitors have gone!

Kazzy - isn't he adorable?! (or she, I suppose - I have no idea how to sex a tortoise...)

Domestic Executive - thanks for dropping in, and for the lovely comments :)

That turtle is so cute. I would love to make something like that. I just need to get moving!

Looks to me like the little critter (and he is lovely) wants a chrochet garden to caper about in!

Debbie - what's stopping you? :) Some of the patterns on that site say they're designed to take less than an hour...

mo.stoneskin - don't give me ideas!

This came up on the top of my 'Google' search, and I found your blog very interesting, particularly this post- well done, and thank you!

This actually got an audible "aww!" from me. I love crocheted animals, but have yet to make any (I seem to specialize in awesome hats that are too large for my head).
