Purly Paw Print Patchwork Blanket
Ages ago when I didn't have a dog and I was just learning how to knit I came across a pattern for a blanket made of squares for the dogs at Battersea Dogs Home. A good project I through to practice on and the sort of thing I could take with me when visiting family which would keep my fingers busy but wouldn't need too much thought.
So I got started, but soon other things cropped up and it got forgotten at the bottom of my knitting bag.
Trello changed this! As I went through all the links and printed patterns I have, I came across this one. As I looked through it to see where I was at I realised I was about half way through. Suddenly I had a record of where I was.
Even though I had bigger and better project on my list I needed to finish this one - I couldn't let it sit there half finished. So when I ran out of wool on the project I was working on I got cracking on these little squares. And now its finished and ticked off my list.
To be honest it's not a very big blanket so I can only assume Battersea have some tiny dogs. I'll be sending if off to them in the next week or so and hope they find it useful.
