Would you knit a blanket for a kitty?



During the blizzard of 2011, Radar and I were busy. I was busy knitting a soft blanket to give to the Heartland Animal Shelter for a cat who is caged and awaiting a forever home. Radar was a good sport as poster kitty for the campaign. All of my cats are from shelters. They are such sweet loving animals. We are so lucky to have Fiona, Radar and Rosalyn.

If you knit or crochet a small (12 inch by 11 inch or so) blanket in acrylic for the shelter, and send it to me in the mail, I will enter your name in a contest. The prize will be wonderful. I am working on the prize......

Email me at harpnut@gmail.com if you need my address. You must have the blankets to me by 2/28
to enter the contest for the prize.

Now, I want your thoughts. What is a good prize? Suggest anything...I'm open to having a really successful campaign for shelter blankets. THANKS!

I talk more in the comments!

I forgot I sent you that wonderful Paprika from the amazing Spice House here in Evanston. HUngarian me you know! I am so glad you loved it. Yummmmm

That is one laid-back cat!!! LOL

Yes Dee. Radar is a mellow mellow fellow. He is deaf and very little bothers him. He sat right next to the firemen who worked on the kitchen, with their saws etc and just watched. He almost makes being deaf a good thing! I would definitely adopt another deaf cat. So quiet natured. ALthough he can wrestle good with fireman and Zach. He knows AL and I dont wrestle so he never even goes for us!

Oh, I will gladly knit a blanket for a shelter cat. I need another stress knitting project - will email you when I'm ready to mail them :)

All of my cats have been from the shelter, and I've loved them all very much.

thank you so much Alyssa. I volunteer at this shelter and it is a wonderful place. The blankets will be used and loved by the staff and the cats!

I think I can whip out a crocheted blanket by then... maybe. If February doesn't get away from me as thoroughly as the last two months did!

I would love to knit a blankie for a kitty or puppy but we are getting into the thick of things at work and I can't guarantee by 2/28. Can I opt out of the prize and knit one or more later for you to deliver to the shelter?

Radar is so cute!!
