Specs:
Started 4/21/15;
Finished 5/4/15;
Pattern: Striped Stockinette Snake by Purl Soho
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers in Indigo Frost and Liberty
Loopy Academy, Semester 2
Variations: Increased the spacing of the stripe at about 45 inches; knit an additional 5 inches in length

I did a stash dive in my button box to find suitable eyes. I love the rounded green eyes. No snake is complete without a forked tongue--I used a scrap of red felt and used a large tapestry needle to thread it through the mouth. It was a really fun knit!
