A couple of small in between projects to give me a break from a large and rather boring shoulder afghan that I am knitting for my husband.

The snake is for my daughter..she has been asking for a knitted snake all week..and her B-Day is next Friday..so I am all about spoiling her as much as possible all week long.
(somewhat older parent who never thought she would have children...plus she was very premature..spoiling her is hard to resist. I don't resist during my children's "birthday week" )

Hey those are very cute.  Bet she will love the snake...how big is it?  Never thought of using potholder loops.  Great idea.  ~Tricia

hmm...Tricia..the snake is about 10 inches maybe? It was totally off the cuff..but I dont use alot of patterns. Oh..and I have thought about potholder loops for awhile..then I was inspired to go ahead and try it when reading about it in "Mason* Dixon Knitting" One of the coolest books on the planet.

Teapotdkny: Lemme see if I can explain how I did it.
First I cast on a large number of stitches on a fat needle..I know it wasn't my 15 because I was using that for the snake. Then I knit a few rows..maybe four or five..then I started doing knit together 4 stitches to make it like a ruffle, then I decreased that way again and again and then I joined them topgether in a circle as I bound off..towards the end I think. Then I crocheted a slip stitch to kind of hide those decreases and make it look nicer inside and out. I wasn't happy with the gathering so I crocheted it inside around the middle to draw it in some..slip stitching and gathering as I went. then I inserted the hook through the inside middle and crocheted a chain.
I will be doing it again and will write down what I do..I can be a pretty intuitive knitter sometimes.
