I apologize; I thought you were making a general shout-out to anyone that had blankets but no place to donate them -- I didn't realize that you were volunteering to knit as well.

If you would like to knit with us, please let me know which blanket you want to work on and I will add you to the list.

We currently have three blankets that are need of volunteer knitters. If you are interested in donating (and starting a new snuggle for us) let me know that too and I will put you down at the end to finish.

Thanks so much for offering to help! I'm sorry I misunderstood your original post.

DH took down the internet -- we have been doing some remodeling in the basement, which required moving my computer desk, and I found out what he has been doing whenever we add a new device onto our network! (It wasn't pretty. ) I had him move the boxes to the unfinished side of the wall where he has better access to them and he has run into a snag that affects two of our computers, including the laptop in my bedroom where I store my photos. So, no internet access over the weekend. :( Hopefully he'll get that fixed over the next week and I'll put some new photos on the blog.

I did take Flower Path to the shelter this weekend -- it seems that Sunday is their busiest day! But I was able to talk to one of the workers. I remembered him from when we adopted our cats, and he remembered my kitties too! In fact, the grey kitty had been part of a pair named they named Thelma and Louise, but when we went to adopt, Louise was already taken -- he told me that he had been talking about the pair recently.

Anyway, he seemed to be both surprised and grateful when I pulled the blanket out for him. He took me to the clinical area where they have some kittens who were recently rescued and told me that was where he was going to put the blanket. (They separate new arrivals for a few days to give them a chance to get used to people and aclimated with their surroundings. It was certainly a lot quieter back there.) It was so nice of him to take that time (when they were so busy) to show me! I only wish I had taken my camera in with me; there were so many cars when we pulled in that I thought it wouldn't be worth dragging it along.

Shandeh, I received Cloud Nine Saturday. Thanks so much for all the goodies you enclosed. The White Tea/Raspberry drink mix is delicious! I haven't decided what colors to use for my section yet, but when I finish, I will post a progress picture.
