I really enjoyed tatting this little fellow! I used size 10 crochet cotton because it was the only thread I had that would do for a snake. I know the colors will not be found on any snake ever known to man, but I think he is cute. I made him for my little grandson's nursery. I think I will put him in a frame with an "S" for snake. I'll probably be tatting little creatures for a long time to come. I think they will be so cute on the walls in his room.
I looked for some variagated green thread on Friday, but didn't find any in the store. I guess I'll have to order some if I want my tatted snakes to look more realistic, but I really think reality is overrated!
