snuggles project

Hello,my name is Laurie and I have been recouping from broken knee for some time now. I had so much time on my hands that I started to to teach my self to crochet.
Then we decided to adopt a dog from people who just couldnt take care of him and didnt want him anymore(imagine that?)
So after we adopted this dog I crocheted him some blankets from lion brand Homespun yarns.He loved these blankets,and now has about 4 of them.I found a charity that accepts blankets for homeless dogs/cats in shelters, and I decided to start making them for these poor innocent animals. The project is called "snuggle project " and you can asscess this charity thru
I have since donated 4 blankets to a local shelter(angels gate) near me and am working on the next batch for a different local shelter. These blankets help keep scared ,lonely dogs/cats in a time when there is no love for them. It makes me so sad to see them with no comforts.
I have used lions brand yarn due to the softness and warmth for these animals. Also they wash well in washing machine. They cant speak ,but the people in charge of them do and say thankyou so much for my kindness in making these small comforts for the animals.I reach out to you all to please consider crocheting some of these blankets .They can be as small as 24" by 24".You can make larger ones too. Please visit the hugs for homeless pets link listed above. Lion brand ,thanks you for such a fine quality yarn to make these babies warm and comfy.
Sincerely ,Mrs Laurie Schwartz
