Snake Scarf

One day I was shopping with my kids and Zaahir spotted a multi-colored color block scarf that we thought looked like a snake. I found some cool self-striping yarn and am making him a snake of his own:

Doesn't it look like a snake? I casted 18 stitches onto size nine needles and did basic stockinette so the edges would curl and make the scarf more snake-like. The yarn is "Moda Dea Sassy Stripes" and the color is "Crayon".

Here's a fun piece of knitting trivia - I was teaching a Pakistani kid in my 8th grade class how to knit, and he says that his mother calls casted-on stitches "houses".
