The snake that almost became road kill

When I knit or crochet  I like big hooks  and big needles  and chunky yarn.  Seeing this snake and how cute it was I thought I have to make that.  Now the pattern calls for a size 1 needle but I used a 2  and found I had the perfect yarn for this project.  It took a while using a size 2 needle to get this snake knitted  and then there was the hat to make.  Once finished  I layed the snake on the table and feeling like a surgeon I begin the sewing process with wire wrapped in batting.  The hat is a little floppier than I like  and I think I choose the wrong buttons for the eyes and will change that  but here is the snake  that was almost road kill
