project details
pattern: "Sheldon" by found here: http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTsheldon.html
needles: straights in 3, circular needle in 2 (used magic loop)
hook: D
time span: I started in 2008.... then frogged and started over in February 2012, and knit him up in about 3 days
total cost: ~$5
notes:
  • I knit Sheldino one needle size down from Sheldon and Sheldina so he would come out a little smaller... and he did!
  • His neck hole is a very tight fit to get the body in and out of the shell (perhaps due to the smaller needle size?). In fact, I would recommend not taking him out of his shell at all. This is disappointing because it makes him a little bit harder to play with than the other two.
And here is a picture of the happy family:
