i don't even know where to begin. what a festive lil snail.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 03:39 PM

Snails are cute but this guy just about takes the prize with his Christmasy little shell-warmer! That's a well-loved snailio!!


 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 03:43 PM

"Of course he exists. Who do you think left this trail of slime?"

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 03:50 PM

HOORAY! SO glad you liked. As always, the alt-tags are my favorite. Keep the cute up! :)


 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 03:55 PM

A snail. With a Christmas sweater.
Dear God, I love the internet; for without it, I would have never beheld this wonderful sight!

A Snail Cosy! Perfect for keeping his teapot warm inside his house.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 04:58 PM

What gauge needles does one use to knit or crochet the snail sweater? Where does one get the pattern? I want to make sure the snailios in my garden are warm...

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 05:18 PM

Whose size 2 knitting needles made this teeny topper? Now I feel bad that I didn't knit any of the snails in my garden something for the holidays.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 05:21 PM

Hilarious and creative! I love it.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 05:23 PM

On another note: this reminds me of a book about how a little grumpy gnome learns to love again by having to take care of a snail named Rosie. Rosie eventually dies but the gnome finally learns to love and be kind. Wish I could remember the name of the book. It's a Christmas story even. :(

Isn't Nicholas Snailcozy the president of France?

A snail...makes sense I guess.

Oh, you must go look at the blog. She made tiny crocheted Halloween costumes for the snailios!!! And her crochet covered rocks are fabulous. I love the Intarwebs!!

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 05:40 PM

Isn't Nicholas Snailcozy the president of France?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Can't breathe I'm laughing so much.

Just stay far away from people melting butter little snail and you will remain the cuest fashion icon evah.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 05:50 PM

Aw snaily, I am glad so many people love you. I try but I do not think I will ever like snails. Or frogs.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 07:06 PM

Who in the world would of thought to decorate the snailio? I'm going to show my kittehs this so they can quit complaining about the reindeer ears I made them wear!

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 07:09 PM

I think you may hafta start a new website -

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 08:21 PM

A snail cozy. I loff heem.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 08:36 PM

MUY redonk!!

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 09:12 PM

I think I just officially forgot all my troubles looking at these pics.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 09:34 PM

This is so cute that it hurts. Seriously.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 10:01 PM

Well, it's only a matter of minutes before someone writes the lyrics to "Santa Slug-gy."

This is just...too...beyond...words...

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 10:04 PM

For some reason... and I don't know WHY, but these pictures had me laughing in delight.

You gotta admire the way she see's things so differently, this crafter. I mean, who'd have thought to create something like this?? Not your everyday garden variety knitter, that's for sure.

 |  Dec 27, 2008 at 10:26 PM

Ahahahahahaha, cute!
Also, coccyx or cochlea came to mind when I read "coctail". Hm.

As if this post could be improved on, someone goes and thinks up Nicolas Snailcozy. Breee-lliant !

Thanks Meg! Your recent posts are greatly contributing to helping me get over the flu.

I have now seen everything. Close the door and shut out the lights.

@claudia: I agree----how wonderfully creative!!!

Gail (the first one)
 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 03:36 AM

I hope it dosn't dry the snail out. that cosy looks very absorbant. :P

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 05:06 AM

Thanks for the visit from St. Nicholas (Snailcozy)! I am joyous!

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 05:45 AM

If that doesn't make you happy to look at, well, I have no other words, you need to 'see someone' right now. Thank you to everyone who made this wonderful picture essay possible.

Nicholas Snailcozy is indeed the President of France, yes,he is indeed.

Michelle S., you are absolutely right, everything else will be just commentary.

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 06:30 AM

Katrina! How you be!?

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 06:36 AM

Dear person who knit a snail cozy,
Thank you. From the top of my head to the bottom of my feet.
XO Jezebel

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 06:40 AM

God bless the woman who thought enough of a little ol' snail to knit it a sweater...

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 07:08 AM

Theresa-I am so much better, thank you! The main Pneumonia is gone, just tiredness and the occasional cough remain, the Fibro is there and the Orchestra has been invited to play in the New Haven Symphony Youth Orchestra Festival in March in Yale's Woolsey Hall!

I wish us all a wonderful 2009, with love and music for all to share! Woohoo!

How are my dear friends here?? I see some new names-welcome!

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 07:22 AM

there's something slightly wrong with how cute i think this is.

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 08:28 AM

paskickies and snail cozies for all in 2009!

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 08:39 AM

Admire what?


 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 08:51 AM

Who thinks of these things? Let alone knits them!!

 |  Dec 28, 2008 at 09:19 AM

Alright bserv, you asked for it:

Santa snaily, come along your glistening trail, don't fail
To leave your presents under the tree
Santa snaily, hurry down the chimney to me

Santa snaily, I've been so kind to molluscs all year, my dear
I've knitted little hats for their shells
Santa snaily, hurry down and see for yourself

You can take your time; I'll wait--
I don't mind if you're a little late
When your gifts come from Santa Snail
You have to like to anticipate
Boo doo bee doo

Santa snaily, sometimes your delivery's slow, ho ho
I doubt you'll make it here in a day
Santa snaily, but could you bring my mittens by May?

Santa snaily, Christmas Day has come and it's gone (yawn yawn)
I'm still guessing when you'll arrive
Santa snaily, maybe by July twenty-five?

I left some snacks here by the fire
All the Christmas goodies you could desire
Little snail, I hope you get here soon
'Cause even fruitcake has got to expire
Boo doo bee doo

Santa snaily, I promise that I won't give up hope, nope nope
I still believe that you're on your way
Santa snaily, hurry down the chimney today

Hurry down the chimney today
(repeat 47 times)

Hurry down the chimney already!!...
