Teal Crocheted Afghan (Part 2)

Back to afghan making! I finished up the flowers on the teal afghan project.

I saw how much my dog like to pull and scratch and enjoy the afghan and I knew if I put flowers everywhere I was supposed to the dog would either scratch the flowers apart or not want to use the afghan. And you know what? I want everyone in the family to use it, even the dog. I want every living thing to feel comfortable in our home.

So instead, I put the flowers here and there around the parameter.


I may add a few in the middle, depending on how everyone uses it. For now, though, I’ll leave the flowers at the edge.

    I love that thought – that every living thing should feel comfortable in its home. I type this as one of our little poodle mix dogs rests snuggles up behind me on my office chair :D. Dusty is definitely very comfy!

    Clever solution to the issue; and I don’t think it takes away from the design at all because of the dark teal base.

      Glad you liked that thought, Eileen. After all, what would our home if our pets, family, kids, and visitors weren’t comfy? I thought the same thing about the teal. Since it’s darker, you don’t notice the “missing” flowers as much.

    I’m with you. As long as no one eats the afghan, he/she/they should be able to use it and enjoy it. That’s what it is made for, right?

        Your afghan is beatuiful! I am currently working on a much smaller ripple for our niece. I want to make a large one someday, but like to make kid-sized blankets and clothes, etc. Have a good one! Linda

        How galling it must be for her to pass into htoisry as merely the wife of a former prime minister! That, surely, is the whole cause of such celebrity as she enjoys and her remarks are about as enlightening or inspired as those of a footballer’s WAG.
