A small finished object this week...
My close friend recently got a puppy, who seems particularly keen on woolen type toys. Having destroyed her latest one, my friend asked if I would be so kind as to make a new one.
It's the first time my friend has really shown an interest in my knitting (save for the obligatory admiring of the things I have made of course!) so I was delighted to oblige.
I decided that dog toys would be an excellent opportunity to practice my crochet skills, so I grabbed a hook and some of the mystery acrylic yarn I was gifted by a colleague.
The red one was my first attempt, as the previous dog toy had been a simple sausage shape. I was pretty please with my version. So, although my friend had only asked for one toy, I was on a bit of a roll and thought I would attempt to make a bone shaped toy *grins*
It actually went surprisingly well ;) In fact, within moments of receiving the parcel with the toys, my friend sent me a picture of the puppy with the bone:
Always nice to have your work appreciated *laughs*
