Whites may not be such a good idea with animals. The white will be so dirty! That's just my two cents though!

Your're probably right.... Maybe just go with the pastel colors then. Yellow, green, orange, blue, purple, whatever!

Dogpile.com - Search Engine
I was reading this great story about a couple of soldiers in Iraq that saved 2 puppies and were able to bring them home with the help of this search and recue project/program.

Here's the story http://rescue.dogpile.com/jackandemma/

You use it just like google. Here's their "mission statement"

We're on a mission to help pets in need. We call it our Search & Rescue program. Now when you search with Dogpile, a portion of the revenue generated will be donated to the pet charity ASPCAź.* The more you search, the more we'll rescue. It's that simple. Our goal is to raise $1 million for pet rescue by the end of 2009.

Check it out.

Hi!

I've been home since Friday -- I'll post more details in the next day or so -- and I wanted to pop in and say I'm ready to go!

I need yarn, though -- I only have the yarn for Snuggle Buddy in my stash. I figure this is a good opportunity for me to try out some acrylics other than the red heart super saver that is in my stash. Is anyone else buying yarn as you go? Any suggestions on brands or labels to check? I have Michael's, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's stores close by, so I'll be watching their sales ads while I wait for my turn.

Hobby Lobby sells a yarn called I Love This Yarn. It's the same price as RH Super Saver, has lots of yardage, and comes in lots of pretty colors, but it's much softer. I use it alot for Oddball knitting. Vanna's Choice is another soft yarn. It's more pricey, but is frequently on sale.

You can also get Caron's Simply Soft, and Red Heart has a Soft yarn now too. Both are around $2 a skein and lots of yardage as well.
How is that baby??

Just a quick thank you to you Shandeh for coordinating this whole project. You are awesome!
