Blankets for the Animal Shelter

Hi there, I don't do much, I just knit blankets for my local animal sheler, I used the long, knitting loom, and make blankets. I feel that the animals need something warm, and soft to lay on, and knowing that a blanket was made with love, makes them feel even warmer, I used to make booties and hats for a group that helps out pregnant women, and they didn't appreciate any effort that was being given to them, in fact, they were downright "nasty" to people trying to help them out, so I said that I was going to help someone out who will appreciate it, and I couldn't think of anyone better than my local animal shelter, they love the blankets, and I know the animals love them, too.
