Hi and welcome DJ bug! I will be casting on Snuggle buddy this week and will start another one probably shortly after. (dunno, reds??? haven't done reds yet???) Would you like to work in blue's or another color scheme? You can do variegated in blues if you want for Snuggle buddy, or you can do anything that goes well with it. Like Sandy said, sometimes I wait to get the blanket from the knitter and take it to the store to see what will go well. You will just need 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together, and you will be set!
If you want to work on snuggle buddy just let me know, i will do a bit of rearranging so that you won't be the last knitter on it.
Please pm me your address and what blanket you want to be on, and I will get you on the list! Don't forget, we are always here (always, really, I work on a computer at work and constantly check this site ) to answer any questions you might have.

I received 2 pet snuggles today! BUT I don't know what their names are!

1. is the blanket I'm finishing, it came from someone in Parix, Tx (I didn't want to say her real name).
2. is the blanket that came from Spikey. I will be the 2nd knitter on this blanket.
Thank you to both ladies for the 2 skeins of yarn I received. I just love getting new yarn!

I hope this isn't too confusing for you shandeh!

~danielle~

PS. Please forgive me, but are there any color/themes I need to be aware of for either of these blankets? Blame it on the pregnancy but I seem to be forgetting everything!

I sent you Whiskers Wooby. Sorry that I didn't put in an instruction sheet, but I can email you one if you want to PM me your email address.

No particular color scheme for this one. Glad you like the yarn!

Danielle-i believe the first one you got was from JDee? she is in Paris, Tx. The name of that blanket is forever friends. I wonder if there are cards in either of those blankets that have the names of the blankets on them? If there aren't do you think you could throw one in or write the name of the blanket on the cards???
Thanks for updating!

We have another new knitter! DJBug is officially on Snuggle Buddy!
I have reordered the snuggle buddy blanket a bit so that our new knitters (or new to the oddballs) don't have to cast off or weave in ends. If this new order doesn't suit you, please let me know.
Snuggle Buddy:
Mulderknitter (casting on)
DJBug
Jdee
Sakura-panda
MishaRF

If anyone is adverse to ending the blanket, I can just put myself as the last knitter, and donate to Feline Rescue http://www.felinerescue.org/ here in MN. They are a no kill/foster/shelter program for cats and kittens and if you are a longtime member you may remember the saga of the 5 kittens and mama that I found under my porch. That is the organization that took in and found homes for all of those poor guys. If you are a knitter that wants to donate, I would urge you to seek a program that values your beliefs in animal humaneness. Even shelters that are not no-kill need help too!

Thank you everyone for helping me with this project. I have been blessed by my two snuggle buddies Mulder and Itchy, and I thank you for helping me pass those blessings on!

Yes, I sent the one from Paris, Tx. I'm glad you got it.

Also, I got Pampered Pets today. Thanks for my yarn!

I wouldn't mind being an end knitter at some point in time (future blanket is perfectly fine). I'll be donating the blanket to the best friends organization in utah.

They do the tv show dogtown on natgeo and they took in 22 of the michael vick dogs. They are a no kill shelter and just a wonderful group. I have a blanket I will be finishing up from the cotton snuggles that will be headed there soon along with some homemade catnip toys and hopefully a parrot sweater or two!

I looked on that website linked in the cotton snuggles thread and the local shelter that I got my beagle from is listed. I'll be happy to finish one sometime in the future, but before I take that on I want to try one and see how I manage that first piece.
