Teacher Appreciation Day Presents
My youngest daughter has Teacher Appreciation Day this week. Both her teachers have a dog and after overhearing her classmates about soap and shower lotions, she realized she had to come up with something else and got a great idea: mom making the dogs of her teachers with a crochet hook! Six days before the event would take place. She must have thought mom hadn't anything else to do (but really: I guess that's what kids think). I would have to crochet every free minute around coffee and lunch dates and a couple of working days to get the dogs ready on time.
One of my daughter's teachers has a Jack Russel and the other has a (take a breath) Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.
Pattern: both patterns (Jack Russel and Retriever) come from the Dutch book Mijn hondjes van sokkenwol by Kristel Droog-Dekkers
Yarn: various colors of Capri by Katia
