August 26 is Dog Appreciation Day!
Let's celebrate by making snuggle blankets to support the Snuggle Project!
The Snuggles Project is an organization that provides Snuggles to animal shelters worldwide.
After being given a Snuggle, a frightened or difficult to handle animal is able to become more calm which allows time for the animal and caregiver to learn how to handle the situation. In addition, Snuggles provide a more homey environment for the animals, visitors and staff.
Click here for knitting and crochet patterns for Snuggles. There are a variety of patterns using different stitches. There are even basket patterns for little pups and kitties.
Want some help with the patterns? We're holding a FREE with yarn purchase workshop on Sunday, Aug 25 from 1 to 2:30pm.
Please note PREREQUISITES:
For My Favorite Knit Snuggle: must know how to CO, K and BO
For Snug Harbor Knit Snuggle: must know CO, K, P, BO and work ITR

Please bring locking stitch markers for all projects.
If you don't need help but want to make a Snuggle, please stop on by and knit/crochet with us!
We plan on sending our first batch of cuddle blankets by September 30.
We'll be taking donations for the Snuggles Project all year.
Let's support homeless animals!
