Spanner is not a puppy any more. His teeth are strong and sharp and here he his, tucking into a treat after Sunday Lunch. 
Re-cycled Sari - Yarn is spun from ripped up saris, by women in Nepal. The yarn is incredably tough, being made mostly of silk. The strength of this multi coloured yarn, makes it perfect for teasing Spanner, by crocheting around his bone. 
Spanner gets confused when he meets one of my crocheted bones. He can smell scores of ladies going about their daily lives in India, cured bone and me. 
After struggling to pick the first holes, Spanner then gets very excited and takes the bone off on his own to spend the entire afternoon sharpening his teeth and licking his lips. 
Sari Yarn is 50p/10g and cured bones aprox £3 from your local pet shop.


Congratulations to Miss Rosemary Haddon for crocheting this delicious burger. Making a burger can teach you nearly every aspect of crochet. The burger, worked in the round, is dressed with a slice of cheese, worked in rows, and topped with hyperbolic cos lettuce, and slices of tomato with chain structure. Free form sesame stitches complete this whopper, which is made with Lion Brand organic cotton, and we hope to make into a kit soon. Yum! X
