Presenting my first crochet snake, representing the House Spirits, or as they're known in Hellenic Polytheism, the Agathos Daimon. They are often represented by serpents, or by a young man holding a cornucopia.
Now I lost my measuring tape, but I think he's a about 2-ish feet long; single stitch, green body, ivory belly, two green button eyes sown on with black thread, and filled with green fuzzy, bendy pipe cleaner guts. Took me 7 hours to make, and I definitely didn't intend on making him as complex when I started. I was just going to make a simple green snake, long enough to use as a garland, to be draped all around Hestia's corner. But as time ticked by, and I browsed pinterest and binge watched America's Worst Chefs on netflix, Agathos Daimon grew and gained a skeleton.
Still simple, and it was fun to make! I would like to make a larger and thicker one for the kids.
He is my gift to the Agathos Daimon, who protect and bless this home and us with abundance and love.
