Slithers Bookmark - Pattern complete!

I finally finished Mikey's "Slithers" in "feen" and finished writing the pattern. I am very happy with the result. I used larger beads this time, and a different way of knitting them in, so the rattle is much more obvious. I have posted the pattern in my Etsy shop, and I'll be offering it for sale on Ravelry too.

Jackson was very interested in why I was taking pictures of Slithers on the Lemony Snicket "Reptile Room" book and wanted to be involved in the photoshoot. This may be the next book we read together. The giant snake on his shoulder is his one of his favorite playmate's and inspiration for this bookmark - "Basil Isk." Basil is a 20 foot long rattle snake that I made for Jackson for Christmas. Mikey got one with "feen" eyes named "Boe Constrictor."
