Cat Blankets

My daughter and I love cats. My daughter, Nicole, volunteers at ADOPT Pet Shelter in Naperville, IL. The shelter does not cage the cats; they have rooms with couches and perches that they can roam around in. Nicole brought home a crocheted blanket that someone made and asked if I could replicate it. I was not familiar with the stitch used for the blanket. I receive weekly newsletters from Lion Brand and found a scarf with a stitch that resembled the stitch used for the blanket. I use 2 strands of the Lion Brand Baby Yarn together. I have made about 30 blankets so far for the cats at the shelter. Nicole tells me the cats love the blankets and takes pictures to send to me. I have not submitted this to the media. What I would say to other knitters or crocheters is that you can't put a price on anything you do for love whether it be for an animal or human.
