IHS Cat Blankets

The cattery at the Idaho Humane Society uses portable metal crates on wheels. To keep the kitties warm, cozy, and happy, the crates are lined with blankets. I often make sample swatches in larger sizes to practice new stitches and provide the kitties with a soft napping place. Since the blankets have to be washed on hot and dried in the dryer, they must be made with acrylic. The Pound of Love yarn goes a long way toward making the blankets with one skein! I spend a few hours a month knitting them up while watching TV or movies and then take the blankets in once or twice per year. Last year I donated about 50 blankets.
