I found a way to volunteer with my knitting through craigslist. Austin Pets Alive needs what they term “kitty snuggles” – small pieces about a foot square for their cats and kittens to sit on while chillin’ at adoption events. Here is a picture of Dot, one of their available kittens (maybe I’ll even get to meet her at an adoption event):
I am so excited to be able to help. I’ve been on the email list of afghans for Afghans for quite a while, but haven’t yet contributed an item. I think this will be the perfect way to warm up my needles for some charity knitting work!
Here is Mrrr modeling the start of my first snuggle:
Just garter stitch, about 2 inches along so far. Maybe I’ll get creative later; for now, I just want to get some finished since apparently APA needs about 30 of them. How am I doing for yarn, you ask? Oh, I have been lugging around some gross acrylic yarn from a kids’ project that took place about 5 years ago – I’m really happy to have an opportunity to use it up.
