Operation Cosy Cats

19 May

I’ve started a new project. Something to make purposeful use of my yarn stash of double-knit yarn.  Cats Protection are asking for knitted or crocheted blankets sizing 12×18 inches for the homeless kitties to use and take with them to their forever home.  That’s a size I can handle. So I have begun this elongated granny square using two strands of different coloured dk yarn (khaki and meadow) hopefully I will reach the required size before the 200g balls come to an end but if they do I can always edge in black.  My midnight brain is already creating other alternative patterns to try with my stash. There is a fabulous yarn shop near me and they often have sales of odd balls, I could make use of those without much financial outlay.  It’s giving me a lovely feeling of philanthropic warmth.

So my aim is to try and finish a blanket every two months and have four finished by Christmas.

    That is a picture of a nice piece of crochet work AnneMarie. Very nicely done.

    It’s a delightful idea providing individual kitty blanket/comforters to go with kitty to forever home.

      Thank you, I do enjoy crochet. I never managed with knitting, it always turned out like a stretched out granddad string vest.
