Hi everyone!

I haven't posted onthis board in ages, but I learned how to knit a few months ago and I'm now addicted to making baby sweaters for all my friends who have babies.
So, I thought I would share my latest creation - the Daisy Snake Charmer sweater. I got the pattern from Knitty.com, and used acrylic yarn that I already had.

I also discovered in the process that those snakes are pretty quick to knit, and the 2 "practice snakes" I made turned out to be great cat toys

That's Amazing!!!!  And looks great, are you sure you've only been knitting a few months ? :-)

I love your sweater (and I love knitty's pattern)!  How long did it take you to knit it?

very nice!  I made one of these as a gift a month ago, only to oversteam the acrylic yarn I used to make it and then discover that my ends were dangerously close to unraveling.  I sent it, anyway.  but yours looks perfect!

I LOVE it!!! Really cute, although I'm prejudiced as I'm very fond of snakes, and in fact own a little gopher snake who now lives at the preschool where I teach --got her as a baby snake when I was 15 and she is now 34 years old, don't want to think how old that makes me.
This is the first knitted snake-embellished garment I've ever seen! (havent' been checking on Knitty lately) The kids at my preschool would think it was very cool!
