Critter Knitters Knit-a-thon

The Critter Knit-a-thon 2004 drew to a close the Saturday before last, and I got my critter blankets postmarked just in time. I have quite a bit of yarn odds and ends waiting to be used, so eventually I’ll make more and donate them locally through the Hugs for Homeless Animals Snuggles Project.

Here are the two blankets I sent:

And close-ups:

Size: Approx. 36 x 38 inches
Pattern: Small version of the Easy Patterned Throw by Vera
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver 374 Country Rose and 0400 Gray Heather (Note: two strands held together throughout, except for reverse sc border. I like using two strands because it makes the blankets nice and thick for the critters.)
Hook: K

    Beautiful blankies, Donna! :) I love the rose critter blankie’s color combination.

    Hi Donna:

    I’ve had my blog for about a year now and have finally decided to add a button on my site. Problem is, where does one start? I love your buttons, you definitely have a real flair. Any tips to get started? :-) cheers.

    I love your crochet case. The idea of having see-through pockets is ingenious…

    There are some special critters out there who will be so fortunate to get those blankies. Thx for sharing the link to Vera’s pattern. I am saving that one for my crocheting future. :)
