Cobra with a ruffled hat

This was supposed to be the second project for the yarn club I am part of through Bare Sheep Yarn Company, but I took a little bit of leeway on the instructions. It was supposed to be a hat. I thought about it a lot, and we just don't use hats here in South Texas, it is way too hot! So, the only hats that get used are when the girls play with dress-up stuff, so the idea was formed of a silly hat. I have been wanting to make Hazel a snake for a while, and this presented the opportunity. It didn't quite turn out as I intended, I was wanting more of a turban style hat, you know where the snake would wrap around her head like a turban, but this is how it came out and I pulled it out enough times to not want to do it again. So here is our cobra snake "Mr. Hiss", sorry for the crappy pics. I did them twice and they were still blurry, so I guess he's just a fuzzy kind of guy.

And yes, this is my 4yo daughter in her dinosaur pajamas with a snake. Someone got her a Bratz doll for her birthday and she asked "What's this?" when she pulled it out.

I had it tied up to make it a hat in the first pic. That was the one rule of the contest, that we had to use the same yarn that was provided and that it had to be able to go "on a noggin". I don't have pics of it full-length, but it is about 3 feet long.

Thanks for looking!

Oh, I really like it and I love her snake face. I hope it wins the contest. It is very creative!
