Here Snakey Snakey

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?

I like the snakes. You should post the cartoon here too. I thought you meant to mispell the ranblings word all along. Creativity!

Your purple snake mitts look awesome!! I love the color and the design is great. I can't wait for the pattern to be released so that I can make a pair, providing I learn how to follow a graph! lol

You could wear them whenever you want! Keep them in your family. They are adorable and you really met the challenge. THanks for entering my contest on irisheyes. I do check every one who comments and their suggested blog. I have found some beauties.
Including yours!
