Greys4me posted a neat thread with a link to knit and crochet patterns to benefit The Snuggle Project, which provides handmade blankets for shelter animals. I found this pattern http://www.snugglesproject.org/patterns/crochet/crochet-snuggle-tubbie.html and thought it would make a great KAL project. This Snuggle Tubbie is a great way to bust your stash because, let’s be honest, kitties will sleep in ANYTHING!
Anyone want to join me? I’m going to use a bunch of Red Heart yarn that I’ve got lying around to make mine. It washes real soft and won’t shrink up. I’ll be donating it to my local animal shelter when done.
As another member mentioned, this is also a great way to nudge someone into knitting or crocheting. What could be better than making something to keep a shelter kitten warm? The cold weather will be here before you know it, and you can bet our local shelters will be in need of things to keep the babies warm.
