Wonderful! Thank you all for joining!

So far, there are 5 of us. If we get just one more knitter, we'll have enough to get started. We will just have to each knit for 4 inches instead of 3. But, there's still room for two more knitters, if we stick to our original plan of 3 inches per person.

I started my section last night, and it feels so soft and cushy! I'm just doing all knit stitches, to make it thick and comfy.

Spikey, you can use whatever cotton yarn you want, as long as it knits to about 3 stitches per inch with size 10 1/2 needles.

My gauge is a little bigger than that, but not by much. I ended up with 11 stitches over 4 inches, so I think our Snuggle might be a little bigger than 24 inches. I figure that will still be okay, though. Pets aren't picky about things like that.

KnittinMitchie and jjminarcik, thanks for offering to do borders! I don't know if we'll need a border or not, but I'll keep you both in mind if we do.

Here's what I've done so far, displayed with the only furry pet I can have. :


I have a feeling that this thread is going to have LOTS of photos of pets in it!
