A while ago I shared this crocheted blanket with you
during the making of which my pup Thatcher (Tatty to her friends) ate my bamboo crochet hooks several times
but I got there in the end and gifted the blanket to my eldest son
much to Tatty's disappointment.
So just like any good puppy dog Mum I promised to make her her very own identical crochet blanket and set to it straight away almost finishing it in less than a week but didn't. The blanket than sat in a knitting bag for the next year and the next year - yep that's right for just over two years - but this week I got it out and finished it.
In fact it looks so similar I'll forgive you for thinking I've just recycled old photos.
But there's been some changes around here over the last two years. The eagle eyed might spot the cream fabric sofa is now cream leather and the back wall has turned a serious shade of aubergine (eggplant)
but the biggest change has to be that Tatty now has a Havanese puppy brother, Watson
who's lived with us for just over a year - proof if needed that this is indeed a different blanket to the first!
And just like the first blanket, Tatty (and Watson too) loves it, she only has one question for me
"What Took You So Long?"!
Do you have an almost finished, promised to a loved one, project tucked away somewhere?
Share your stories in the comments and ease my guilt! :D
