I took Starry Night and Autumn Run to the Boise Humane Society finally! They were much appreciated!! They did tell me if we wanted to do more that 12" or 14" size squares would be nice as they fit better in their cat cages. They said the cats love the knitted blankets. So if any wants to do any squares and mail them to me, I will take them in a couple of months to them. No worries if you don’t.
Thank you again for everyone who worked on these blankets!!
I’m confused…The snuggles are waay more than 12 or 14". So are you saying that’s the size they want? I checked our local APL (where I will be donating “Green Pastures” soon) and their required size is 24 x24"…???
Yes, 12 or 14 inch squares. They do have smaller cages for some of the cats. So this would be one that is not passed along. Just if you wanted to make on your own then I would donate them. That is just this certain place. WE have another one that I am going to check out with and see what size they like!
That is awesome, Susan! I’m so glad to hear that our work is not only appreciated, but that they want more.
I’m still sitting on the finished Cloud Nine. It sits on the cushion in my bedroom and mocks me. I am debating making a bigger blanket in the colors that I used on it to give to my dad – he’s in the hospital and it looks like he won’t be coming home – but am concerned that the colors are babyish. DH has no useful opinion (as in, no opinion at all) so I’m kind of keeping the blanket in sight until I make a decision one way or another.
I should ask my mom, but I think she’ll tell me not to bother. :shrug:
Just want to let everyone know that Spring Break is still with me. I’ve been studying furiously for my classes/finals. I’ll get a break from that this weekend and should have it ready to go early next week.
I’m still sitting on [B]Cloud Nine[/B] – will probably drop it off this week while I’m off work for the kids’ spring break – and I have not heard anything recently about[B] Jungle Fever[/B] or [B]Green Pastures[/B].
Thanks so much for the kind words. I’m thinking hard about it and now am thinking about doing one of those diagonal blankets to give it a little bit of “style”. :teehee: He’s supposed to be moved to a private room in a few weeks and will be encouraged to have personal items when he gets there. That will give me plenty of time to make it.
