Way, way back in February, while I was on my crochet cruise my friend (and coworker), Brigitte, and her family, looked after Truffles for me. Now, this was a big deal, because although her family had cats in the past, they had never had a dog in the house and weren’t sure what to expect. Add to that the fact that he has the Yorkie stubbornness against being completely house trained, and I wasn’t sure how things would go. Happily, he did just fine, and minded his manners while I was gone.
Before I left, I was trying to think of something I could give the family to thank them for taking him in and looking after him. After taking him for a visit to meet them for a few hours a few weeks prior to my trip, I decided to make an afghan, and since their living room was painted in a lovely grey, I decided to go with an afghan in shades of grey.
It took me a while to get it finished, but I thought it turned out great. I gifted it to Brigitte a few weeks ago, and she tells me it suits their living room very well. This is the Ocean Waves afghan made with Caron Big Cakes, in Salt and Pepper
I even made a little tie for it and tied it up in a neat little package for gifting.
Now I’m off to do a little more crochet!
