Hi Katie!

I'll let Mulderknitter know about your questions.
Thanks for helping out!

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 realize that this appears to be past its heyday, but I would love to participate in this if we still have a group going. If we don't is there someway we can get another going and try to start this back up? There's a lot of good work we can do and a lot of animals we can help with this kind of cooperative community.

Tre'sha.

Our daughter runs a sanctuary for special needs animals in Northern California. There's never enough money to cover spay/neuter, food, and vet bills. I buy yarn at yard sales, then knit or crochet pet beds, toys, and blankets for the critters, and also people products to sell online with all the proceeds going to the animals. I'M ALWAYS UP FOR ANY PET/YARN PROJECT THAT ANYBODY WANTS TO WORK ON. I can also promote what others are doing on my websites, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

It looks like Mulderknitter (the leader of the Oddball Pet Snuggles) is not participating here in the KH Forum anymore. And there aren't any active discussions in the Ravelry group either.

I'll be happy to start a blanket for you all here, and the rest of you can knit sections, finish it off, and donate it to a shelter. I'm allergic to animal hair, so I can only START blankets. (I know that several of you have animals that "love on" the blankets as you are working on them.)

Then, when the snuggle is finished, that knitter can start another blanket, and get the ball rolling again. This way, we will at least have some snuggles being created for the animals.

Here is the chart I made, that shows the different sizes of snuggles we can make.

Since it's been so long since our group has knit a snuggle, let's just start over here. I just need to know who is participating now. You can send me a private message, with your name and mailing address to sign up. (Don't post your name and address here, since this is a public forum)

I will be happy to manage the snuggles here in the KH Forum. We are a smaller, more intimate group than the one in Ravelry.

I just sent you a private post with my name and address. I hope I did it right, as I am not familiar with this type forum. I would love to work on Pet Snuggles. I have lots of acrylic and cotton (an embarrassing amount) and I need to pare down my stash!

Shandeh, I had sent you (I think) my info for the SE Baby blankets group... Do you still have it/ did I send it to you?

BTW, I only knit in my bedroom and while I have animals none of them are allowed in my bedroom (or even in my wing of this multi-generational nut house I live in), so you can knit on a blanket that I started :D.
