Grendel reads blogs...



He hasn't figured out how to type yet though...

Off to the ASPCA in a bit. I'm bringing a couple of old blankets that we have in the house. They need them for the kittie and dog beds. I also started making really simple kittie blankets--14 X 12 inch blankies. The first one is in plain ole' garter stitch, but I think I'm going to keep making them and trying out stitches and patterns I want to try (and it's a great way use up left over bits of skeins and whatnot). In these cases, they really need to be acrylic so they can stand up to the crazy amount of washings the ASPCA does. It would be nice if they gave the blankies to the kitties when they get adopted, but I suppose I don't knit fast enough to replace them. Soon though ;-) That just gave me an idea--if anyone is interested in knitting or crocheting blankets for the cats and dogs waiting for adoption at the ASPCA, let me know. If one knitter/crocheter/yarn enthusiast can help, imagine what a bunch of us could do!

grendel really does look like he wants to say something in that picture. you should try to teach hhim how to knit, althouygh i have the hunch he'll be a lot more interested in eating the yarn then knitting with it...

Great pic of your cat... I love it!

You could put the word out in local yarn shops about the SPCA needing the blankets, etc. Maybe they can come through with some donations.

That is such a great idea--I think I'll do that...maybe put up some flyers and such.

Also, did you see that knitters from all over made Crazy Aunt Purl's grandma a blanket? I think that is awesome. I'm going to get in touch with her about how they set that up because I think it is totally doable for animals. Knitter and crocheters are such awesome people--I'm sure they'll want to lend a stitch. :-)
