Last year I came across a charity called Canine Partners. They provide disabled people with trained assistance dogs. The dogs are absolutely amazing! They can fetch the post, open doors, even empty the washing machine. I spoke to my family about it and we agreed that I should apply for a dog. I went through the assessment process and I have been placed on the waiting list.
It costs £20,000 to train and support a Canine Partner through their working life and I wanted to give something back. I wasn't sure how I could fund raise, I'm too sick to run a marathon or jump out of a plane so I looked at what I can do best. Crochet!
I made this blanket in purple (to match the Canine Partners logo) and cream, I chose a chunky acrylic yarn which is very soft, warm and easy to care for. It measure 48" square and it would be great for snuggling up in your favourite arm chair on a cold winters evening.
