Readers of this blog will probably remember my post (last September) about the knitted snake scarf I made (originally for my nephew).
That post set off a series of conversations with a friend, M, who was so taken with the scarf that she wondered if I could knit a snake big enough for an adult.
No challenge is too great for an intrepid knitter, so with some additional input from M (color, snake species, etc) I set to work.
Today I am happy to report that the new, grown-up sized snake scarf is ready to be shipped to its new home in California with M.
I added a few new wrinkles — bi-colored eyes (for fun) and an orange (instead of red) forked tongue (looked better with the green of the body, I thought).
I’m excited to hear M’s reaction (and she is an enthusiastic person, so I am sure I will hear something).
In exchange for the scarf, M (a wonderful writer) has collaborated with me on a new project, still in the development stages, but soon to be revealed. Check this space!
