I finished five cat blankets and took them to the shelter this morning. It's kind of funny, because I had several blankets going at once they all somehow came to have names, they are: Cream Pie, Bit of Lace, Flower, the Meditation Mat, and the Sea Anemone.
The first three are crocheted with this fantastic pattern I found on the net: HERE
and the other two are knitted. (well, the sea anemone has a crocheted border because the k2p2 ribbing turned out narrower than I expected. That made it all ruffly, hence the name.)
They're all about 12 x 14 inches, but the next ones I do will be made to fit a cat carrier, since that is what the lady there mentioned they would use them for.
I don't know why I didn't start doing this sooner - I'm sometimes so intimidated by trying new things, but now I've done it and I just want to make stacks and stacks of cat blankets.
This is the same shelter, by the way, where I adopted my dear sweet wonderful dog three years ago. *pauses typing to go kiss dog*
Be kind to the animals!
