I finished the Snake Charmer from Knitty. I like it. Here's a photo from the front.

My local knitting guild just had a class on how to pick up stitches in curved areas (i.e., the neck area). I'm pretty happy with the results and glad I went - the information was very timely. The only thing is, I ended up picking up more stitches than what was called for in the pattern. So I ended up making the hood much bigger than I anticipated. But it still works!
I knitted this with four balls of 2 oz SnC in the Summer Breeze colorway using the 3-6 month size in the pattern. It was worsted weight yarn, which I think is heavier than what was called for in the pattern, but who cares. It worked.
The pattern called for 6 snakes. I just liked the three since the yarn color is so busy.
Isn't it cute?
