Slither and Hiss


Meet Slither and Hiss, a happily adopted pair of snakes that entered our household this week!



This little lad spied this snake pattern over my shoulder whilst I was visiting Kat Coyle's blog. I left a comment to let her know my son admired her snakes and this led to me getting to test knit the pattern....and make my son VERY happy......then his sister needed to be made VERY happy too!

......although she tends to look quite serious in photos......must take after mum!!

Is it appropriate to say that snakes are cute? Your son looks very happy about his new "pet" ;)

Those are darling. What a great way to play with colors.
(I'm visiting from Knitty - I've been admiring your summer top pattern there.)

That is so cute...believe it or not my grandmother, who was a seamstress, used to make long snakes as draftcatchers to be put under the doors in the crease to prevent drafts from coming in. Your snake reminded me of that.
