Look at these cute little knitted tortoises :D Someone i know made them and shared the pattern, so i figured i’d share it here for you :D I dont understand any of it, so its copied and pasted.
Pattern requires oddments of yarn and a small amount of stuffing. I used seed beads for eyes although French knots would suffice. Requires 3mm needles and dk (I used 2.75mm). Lets get started… 
Shell - co 8 and p 1 row
- Inc kwise in each (16)
- P 1 row
- (k1, inc in next) x 4 , (inc next, k1) x4 (24)
- P 1 row 
- (k2, inc in next) x4, (inc in next, k2) x 4 (32)
- P 1 row
(k3, inc next) x4, (inc next, k3) x 4 (40)
- St st 3 rows
- P 1 row 
Beg p st st 5 rows - the extra p row is your guide for attracting the shell edge later on 
- (k3, k2tog) x 4, (k2tog, k3) x4 (32)
-P 1 row
- (k2, k2tog) x4, (k2tog, k2) x4 (24) 
- P 1 row
- (k1, k2tog) x4, (k2tog, k1)x 4 (16)
- P 1 row
- K2tog to end (8)
Pull yarn through rem sts. Sew inside out leaving small gap for stuffing.
HEAD - co 10sts, beg p, st st 6 rows. Pull yarn through
LEGS - 4 Alike, co 7sts. Beg p st st 4 rows. Pull yarn through
EDGING - co 46 sts and work 2 rows in k1 p1 rib. Cast off pwise.

SO CUTE!!

Skein

'skeen'? or 'skane'?

I just say yarn.
But I am a smart ass. ;)

Skeen for me.

Definitely skeen.

i say skein as in skayn. i checked on merriam webster and thats the pronunciation :)

It’s the fiber arts version of GIF.

I believe the word is of German origin (an honest guess to say the truth). In the German language you pronounce the first vowel when two appear together. “E” is pronounced like “I” so hence sk-eye-n. (Or sk-ein, thinking like the German word for one: eins).

This said I still say skeen.

I always thought it was pronounced the German way anyway. I was inadvertently pronouncing it right! Woop :P

Geode Knitting Pattern

This is attempts number two and three at a knitted geode. I would love to spend more time on these, making wonkier shapes, more colour options, just plain bigger versions. At the moment I’d be quite happy to spend the entire year knitting rocks, I’m not sure that the website would keep getting hits if I did though…

This is really cool!
