You've done it again, Lucy! Imagine - a cute "snake"? You have created a lovable snake and that's a first for me. :D Sending lots of love and I can't stand it anymore..........I have to know how your mum is doing. I haven't been following all the comments where I might find a hint because, well, I lost my mom and I just couldn't talk about it for fear I'd drown in my own tears. So, I think I'll make myself a silly, cross-eyed snake for a little chuckle every time I see him. Thank you so much for all the beauty you bring to my life. Big hug, Moonie


Lucy, this is absolutely gorgeous! I've gone straight out and bought the book -- it might be a little early to be planning for Christmas but I think my little one and his cousin may be getting these from Santa!


I totally love that snake! I want to make one! Can you explain what was so difficult about the tail, so we can learn from your experience?


Can I be your neighbor? Seriously I love your crocheting and you inspire me, but I get lazy and sometimes I need a little boost. :)


Unique design & funny

I am so loving your snake - very cute indeed. And I can't wait to hear about those yarn colours, they're wonderful!
It's always so lovely to see Little B sneak into your photos, my son was born around the same time so he has the same squidgy knees and dimpled hands. He would love me to make him a crochet snake, I might just give it a whirl.

Hope your mum is continuing to improve xxx


Your snake is awesome. I never even thought about crocheting baby toys but they really are the perfect safe thing for tiny hands to play with.
My baby boy loves poking his fingers through the holes in my granny square blanket!


A24! you have cracked me up with this post... your love for stripety things combined with your signature colors worked out perfectly for this snake!

I can hardly get through an afghan or a pair of slippers with my hook as I work so much and have 3 to provide for... so I live vicariously through your lovelies... A snake, by the way, would make a lovely draft catcher for the cold months... he would look so cute blocking a draft from the back door!

Have a great weekend!


SOOOO cute!


Hi again!
I just wanted to mention that I had a go of making a snake like yours, and failed miserably!!!!!!!!!!!
I have posted about it over at my blog.
Thanks for the inspiration again, I will keep trying

OMG this is exactly why I am addicted to your blog ! As you know, I adore vintage finds....and I found a vintage McCall's 1976 crochet pattern magazine..... Oh my gosh, I can see the patterns in your totally adorable colors !!!!!!!

I have listed it here for fans who may be interested !! I will mail overseas :)



I so love your rainbow colours! I can't wait to get back into crocheting again!xx


Love himm(or her?)! Another thing to add to the list! Just 3 weeks ago the crotchet was a memory from childhood...and then your blog re-awakened the beast!!!

I started with a flat circle which became a bird, so I made two more with became decorations and then two more...(awaiting the pointy star treatment!). Then it got really obsessive...dug out some age old granny squares and had a go at joining as you go....wow - how easy is that (thanks to your soooo simple tute).

Then a wool order and after a couple of days I'm nearing the end of the first side of a round cushion!

Oh Lucy!! What have you done to me? THANKS! I love it! Being creative, relaxing, blog-skimming in order to soak up colour, ideas, buttoney goodness etc....divine.

Thank you ooodles for sharing so much of yourself and giving so freely. xx

Hi Lucy - just wanted to let you know that I was recently awarded The Stylish Blogger Award, and I'd like to pass it on to you as I love your site so much! Please visit the post at my blog Dancing in the Rain at http://rainydaycrafter.blogspot.com to pick up your award. Congratulations! :)


I love the snake and the colours you've used so much! :)


Woo hoo!!! You're back!!! With a beautiful snake too! :)


The snake is lovely - odd thing to say about a snake but there it is. I also was never thinking of making toys until i saw a book of knitted toys and on my way to make the turtle saw a snake which i made and photographed but havent' had the time to put up on my blog yet. i also love the afghan your snake is photgraphed with. Awash with color and very beautiful..I am so glad I found your blog and am adding to my own blogroll!


Yesterday I started my granny stripes blanket and I love working on it, I have 6 stripes ready and I can't wait to work on it again. Thanks so much for sharing.
