There Once Was A Turtle Named Jack…

There once was a turtle named Jack and he crawled in a wrinkled lunch sack. He met a green turtle and her name was Myrtle and she said would you like a snack? He loved her bologna and cheese and said would you marry me please? She said this was fun, but I have to run. I think you are making me sneeze! Achoo!

I didn’t come up with that myself, it’s a book I read almost every day to the children I work with. But the turtle is totally something I would love to knit. It’s like the knitting version of amigurumi crochet. The pattern came from the awesome people over at Knitty.

He has a removable shell! How cool is that? I had a professor in college who looked like a turtle without his shell, but he wasn’t this cute.
