Caring and Sharing

Blankets for Homeless Pets

- I looked for knitting for charity info on the web. I found the Hugs for Homeless Animals website and decided to knit "snuggles" or blankets for shelter animals.

- I have knit several blankets and donated them to PAWS Chicago (Pets Are Worth Saving), a Chicago no-kill animal shelter.

- I've used Thick & Quick. I've also used non-Lion Brand yarns. :-(

- No group, just me. No set schedule or quota, just whenever I feel like working on a "mindless" project with leftover yarn.

- Again, no set amount of time. Just whenever I feel like it. It does take quite a few hours to make even a small blanket, however.

- No people, but quite a few kitties and other animals.

- Knit for kitties!

- No.

- Again, no people. Just nice snuggly blankets for homeless critters to curl up in.
