We never mind and completely understand that life happens to all of us. I am sorry that you are going thru such a rough patch, I will check with the next knitters. Summers are notoriously slow for us oddball knitters, so really, no worries at all! Here's to a speedy recovery and well wishes for you!

It's been so chaotic I forgot to tell Muldarknitter that I sent the needles from my last finished snuggle. I hope it isn't long until I'm back on the list, but for now, I thought it best keep the needles in the loop...and I'm temporarily out of the loop.

Purple People Eater
I got Purple People Eater in the mail yesterday and I will be working on it later this week. I am very concerned that our group seems to have dwindled. It makes me sad because the snuggles are an easy knit that anyone can do. Being a shelter volunteer, I know that there are countless animals out there that need the snuggles. I really wish for new life for our group. The need is most definitely there.

Hi Rhonda - Yes, it's been fun watching this group do so much for the shelters. All of you Snuggles knitters inspired me, and I just finished my 38th one. My stash is big and I get leftover yarn from other people (and use my 40% off coupons from Michaels, etc.) and so I launched my own Snuggle campaign a little over a year ago. When I take the Snuggles to the shelter, they love them. And I often see pictures on the shelter's web site with a kitty sitting on one I made.

So keep up the good work, everyone!

I would like to make a challenge to all the Oddball Blanket groups.

Use my design ideas to knit two blankets for your group.

Blanket 1: “GENIUS”
Black, White, and Red

Blanket 2: “SUPERHERO”
Comic Book Colors

I think it will be interesting to see what each group does with this!
I will make a new blog, showing the progress of the blankets. Be sure to post photos, which I can use to highlight the work for your regions!

When the blankets are complete, I will send an additional blanket (knit by me) to your region, for you to donate in your area. So, everyone will be a winner!

I'd love to start the Superhero snuggle, if that's ok. I have an empty set of snuggle needles that I can use.

Let me know if that's ok Mulderknitter

Hi all!

I haven't been around or doing much knitting lately, but I was thinking I'd like to sign up for these blankets again. It's been about two years since I last participated (when I was on maternity leave for my now two year old ) and I haven't been keeping up with the thread.

Are you taking new knitters? How much time do we get with each blanket? What are the requirements again? Is the process the same or have there been changes and improvements? (Not that I remember what I did before. )

I'd be happy to be at the beginning, middle or end of a blanket -- I have a couple of local shelters that I think would accept them and I would love the excuse to go buy a new circ -- just let me know.

I guess I could just make my own too, but I remember how fun it was keeping track of the blankets and watching them grow! And how interesting it was to see the differences in everyone's garter stitch.
