I thought I would make a post about where I plan to donate my pet snuggle when the time comes for me to finish a blanket. I also though if others were unsure of a place to donate it, I would make a recommendation. Please don't feel obligated to donate to this organization it's just a suggestion as sometimes it's not always easy to figure out where you'd like to send your knitted gift!

www.bestfriends.org . They are a wonderful organization that helps to take care of animals, even unwanted ones. They have actually taken in all the pit bulls that were taken from Michael Vick's home in Virginia. They will have forever homes there if they are not adoptable. I also emailed the donation cordinator and she said they would be happy to accept our blankets (I wanted to be sure since blankets weren't on their wish list).

So if you're unsure or scoping out places to donate, you may consider this organization! I am making up some knitted catnip toys (thank you Shandeh for the pattern/idea) to send with my knitted blanket when my time comes!

I received Paws and Claws yesterday! I started working on it already in navy and hunter green. My husband asked why I wasn't using white with another color like everyone else . Silly men! It should be on it's way in a few days!!

Danielle, I've made you the last knitter on "Forever Friend", so you can donate that one!

I received Forever Friend from my new BFF Sandy and am picking out colors from my stash. I'll be knitting on it tonight and am excited about this project. And probably 99% of the time when I knit I have my cat Meeko on my lap and my golden retriever Joe at my feet. Somehow that seems so fitting doesn't it???

Mulderknitter, are you still casting on a new snuggle?
Just let me know when you're ready, because I have two knitters ready to knit after you: misha rf, and kellyh57

You'll still need 3 more knitters for that snuggle.

Also, I'm going to cast on four more snuggles in the next two months. They will have a "Royalty" theme, since so many animals have a kingly or queenly attitude.

Her Highness - pink, red, purple
Sweet Princess - pink
His Majesty - blue, purple
My Prince - blue

I will probably wait until January to mail these out, so we can all concentrate on our holiday knitting.
