Also, I went through all of my yarn tonight (my stash isn't huge, but I don't have any plans for any of it so it is something that needs to be managed) and I found I do have partial skeins of Country Blue and Soft Navy. (Not the colors I guessed earlier. )

I don't have a lot of the Country Blue left -- I weighed it on my little scale and came up with 68g (includes sleeve). Any idea if that is enough? I'll have to check and make sure somebody carries it so I can run and buy a skein when my turn is up, if I need to.

Thanks for the message, Danielle!
Neither of those snuggles have a color scheme. Just a free-for-all. Use up those little bits of cotton yarn!

Sounds great! They are next up on the list after I finished the two baby blankets I've got! Hopefully by the end of next week the one snuggle will be ready to move!

Parrot sweaters.
Best friends has asked for parrot sweaters b/c these birds usually come from homes that have been stressfull/neglectfull. The birds tend to pull their feathers out (it's a reaction to the stress/neglect). There is a really easy pattern someone came up on ravelry. I'll just be using that simple pattern to knit up a couple to send along to help the birds. It's a good way to use up more of that acrylic yarn!

I really don't know Maybe just wait and see when the blanket comes your way. I know it's not a lot used, but I couldnt' really guess as to the amount.

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 watch dogtown on nat geo all the time! that sounds like a great idea!

That is my plan, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Thanks! (Can you see I'm anxious to get started? Is this how all first-timers feel? )

Yes, it is! I was very excited and anxious to get my first one. And that's nothing...wait till you see it in your mailbox! Now, that's a sight to come home to after a hard day at work

I'm waiting on my second one now...either this one or one of the cottons...whichever gets here first!
