I finished one snake mitt, the test pattern knitting....
The Dilbert cartoon was offered as a challenge to anyone who wanted to design Snakes for mittens. (To clarify, I did NOT design these, I am only test knitting them).
I think these turned out very cute for a purple snake. Every thing was stuff I had, which makes me very happy. The yarn is Cascade 220 worsted weight wool (which is a joy to work with, for wool), the beads are some that I purchased last year to make holly beads on a Christmas pillow, that hasn't been made yet, and the little bit of red from a skein of cascade that I got for DD2 last year.
I did have to buy US5 double pointed needles. I bought the cheapest set I could find, and they are a little too long... hmm.
Anyway, I was thinking of giving these away when finished, but they are so cute! I may keep them, but when would I ever wear them?
