I'd be willing to work on this wonderful cause too. Just let me know when you need me if you have enough for the first one.

Yay! Now we have EXTRA knitters!
I knew this project would be a fun one.

It looks like I need to start TWO Snuggles!

I hesitate giving them names like the baby blankets have. Maybe we should just give them numbers.

So, I'll start Snuggle #1 and Snuggle #2.

Now, we need a few more knitters, and we'll be ready to fly!

I'll join in! How about we name them after animals or give them animal like names- like Rover, Fido, etc. It's much more fun to have cutesy names!

Thanks for joining us, Kelly!

Okay....we can use fun names like you're suggesting. Sounds good! We'll use names that don't require a specific color theme, cause I have a feeling these blankets are not gonna be beautiful.

How about number one being "Paws and Claws"
and number two being "Puppy Love"?

All righty then!

So, it looks like there are 10 of us. Here's what we'll do.

There will be 6 knitters on each blanket. (Hopefully, we will get ONE more knitter to join us before we are through.)

Paws & Claws
Shandeh
Mulderknitter
misha rf
kellyh57
Spikey
jjminarcik

Puppy Love
Shandeh
jdee
gmmarton
mamapaulsel
(need one more knitter)
KnittinMitchie

And here's the name of our NEXT blanket, when we're ready to get started on another one.
Kitty Cuddles
Shandeh
(need 5 knitters)

I'll include a small card, so we can sign our names, and write the state we live in when we work on the blankets.

Since we might be sending treats for each other's pets, let's each take time to respond the following:

1) What are the names and types of pets you have?
2) Do they have any requests for a small treat?
3) Show us a photo of your pets!
4) Tell us a story about your pet.

Hello again everyone!

I just made a blog for our project:

And here's a button I made if you want to use one:

Ok...you've been pulling me in slowly to join the fun of an oddball blanket.

This sounds like a good one (a puppy won't notice if I make a wrong stitch) for me to start on. Most definitely don't want to be first or last...but in the middle would be good.

So....put me in coach....to knit on Puppy Love
