Just one lonely snake wrapped up in a gift bag. I diligently knit more snakes while sitting through brunch and all the other gifts being opened. I shushed questions of "What are you knitting?" with "we'll talk about it later."
And by the time she opened the gift, I was ready to sew on three more snakes. Here is the happy mother to be modeling the sweater.
Yes, I know it should have been blocked -- but honestly, I have never blocked anything and there was no time. The pattern is the boat neck sweater from Debbie Bliss Baby Knits with snakes inspired by Stephanie's snake charmer sweater. That is one more thing off the side bar list for want of finishing.
