I am still working on my Christmas gifts (the handmade ones). Slow and steady wins the race, right? I can't believe that Christmas is next week. Mr. Turtle is going to be gifted to a friend who loves and collects turtles (not real ones).
A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that the fingers on my right hand gets numb and tingly when I am grasping a fork, using chopsticks and writing with a pen. Last week, I asked the doctor about it during my regular OB visit, the doctor said that it sounds like Carpal Tunnel. Another side effect of the pregnancy, which hopefully will go away after the birth. Knitting, thank goodness, doesn't affect me, but crocheting bothers my hand. So, I will be taking a break from crocheting. I have other crochet projects that just needs some sewing up.
Hopefully, Mr. Turtle will make it to his destination before the next storm hits. We had 2 so far, but everything cleared up by the next morning.
Pattern: Tiny Turtle pattern from here (scroll down).
Hook: US F5/3.75mm
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Multi Color, color: Banana Berry and Caron Simply Soft Brites, color: Limelight
Size: 4 inches long by 2.5 inches tall
Mods: I used the Magic Adjustable Ring to crochet in the round. Mr. Turtle is top heavy and tends to fall on his face, so I'd recommend putting something in the shell to keep the turtle balanced.
