Tiny Turtle

Today I crocheted Caleb this tiny little turtle. He's a patriotic turtle -- red, white, and blue. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, although I wasn't expecting the head to be quite so big.

When I gave Caleb the finished product, he tried to bite the turtle's head off. His three teeth sunk in, and he pulled on it as if he was going to rip the head off the turtle. Apparently, I have mad sewing skills, since the turtle survived the attack. I kept telling Caleb no, but that only made him laugh more and attack the turtle again. I'm glad he likes it, even if the turtle is dead by tomorrow.

Here's another shot with Caleb's baby food jar in the picture so you can see just how little the turtle is.

I can't believe you still remember how. I totally forgot how to knit and I could never make anything besides scarfs.

Karen, I love visiting your blog. You have a new and exciting post everyday. Great job on the turtle. By the way, I am sure you already know this but, Caleb is such a stud.
