Thanks for the encouragement! And it's nice to hear that your snuggles are appreciated. I visited the local shelter the other day, just to make sure they could use them if we made them, and the staff people were very encouraging. I looked through the cat area, and they had cages of all sizes, and they will take whatever we might make. I even saw 2 handmade little blankets in the cages, one was knit and one crocheted.

I went ahead and took a bunch of my leftovers and threw together a snuggle to show my group, so they would have an idea about what they might look like. It's hard to tell, but it turned out about 25' wide by about 19" long. The funny thing is that I started out with a double strand of Red Heart + Vanna, and ended up with 2 strands of Caron, and it was about an inch narrower at the Caron end. Oh well. (I stretched it in the picture, so you can't really tell.) The nice thing is that I'm sure the kitties could care less. >^..^<
