This is a picture of a toy I recently made for a grandson. It's from Kath Dalmeny's World of Knitted Toys. The original calls for all red. I think the bright colors are not only attractive, but can be used to help him learn his colors. Also, I used yarn eyes and nothing stiff to make him stand up as the recipient is a toddler.

Thanks :). The real irony is that I am terrified of snakes! I like him enough that I am making one for my first great grandson. It's an easy pattern and although it doesn't really show in the picture, he does have a forked tongue.

That snake is great and the only snake I would not be terrified of. But, I was watching the cat and cats can be very dangerous to snakes so I would watch the cat to make sure it does not pounce! Beautiful job! Thanks for the pictures.

Well, goodness me. This little fella just jumped right out at me. I don't blame you for using different colors, and what a cool way to teach colors to the little one. You did a beautiful job, and the little one is going to be delighted with this! :thumbup:
