    Maybe Throttle can teach Ronin how to crawl. What a great squishy toy for her. Kudos to Ilana. –Gramma Peg

    Pretty fancy turtle! Ronin is looking so cute! Its so neat to me how she is a perfect mix of each of you.

    Ronin’s got quite a scary ‘Come hither so I can do the same to you’ look in those photos. I’m not sure I’d want to meet her down a dark alley late at night…

    Damn, I knew I should have put more stuffing in the neck. It was my first attempt at a knit stuffed animal and although I stuffed the neck repeatedly (like four times!) the batting always ended up migrating into the head. Oh well. It sure does warm my heart to see her lovin’ him up! Throttle is a great name too. Patern can be found here, if there are any intersted kniters out there:

    The only mod I made was the eyes (to make them baby safe.)
