It looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Where did it go? (For the blog)

How is everyone doing? It looks like Susan should be getting a couple of blankets soon.

Should we get another set of needles and start sending another one around? Are some of you getting antsy? (I am! )

Put me down for the next blanket!!! I've been itching to use up scraps in a project like that.

I'm all for starting another one. I have an extra set of needles... just need inspiration for colors and/ or a name!!

Anyone else interested in signing up for a new blanket? Also, how are the other blankets coming along?

I'd love to work on another one! Even if we're not able to adopt the animal the blanket goes to, at least we're doing something to keep them warm and loved.

That's how I think about it too, Mary. I actually started a new snuggle because I needed something mindless to knit but my daughter claimed it to put in her dogs kennel. I can start another one no problem. I have actually considered knitting up a couple myself to to take to the local shelter myself. Anyone else interested??

I apologize for not paying attention; I now see that none of our blankets have moved an inch since before Thanksgiving! It's no wonder you are thinking you would be farther ahead working on your own. (To be honest, I've considered working on my own too, except that I enjoy getting the blankets in the mail.)

So, what do you all want to do? How much interest is there in keeping this going?

It doesn't work if everyone is not committed to sending the blankets on within a week or two; it's hard to sign up for a project, no matter how small, if you can't at least estimate when it may show up on your doorstep.

I have been slacking at poking people that are holding onto the blankets for too long and I am sorry for that.

If there is enough interest (and commitment), we can discuss what we want to do from here.

I like being part of the group projects, too.There are undoubtedly more efficient ways to make pet blankets but this is fun and it ends up with more blankets than we would have without the group effort. Extra ones that you make on your own are all to the good so that works as well.
So, I'm firnly in favor of continuing. A time limit is a good idea. Two weeks would be fine with me but I'm interested in what everyone else has to say.
(btw: You can add me on to both projects if we decide to go forward.)

I'm doing snuggles on my own, but would love to keep doing the group projects too. It's neat to get them in the mail and add your own touch to everyone else's.
