KNOW Mtg – Special Pals
January 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Exciting news! This month’s KNOW meeting will be a benefit for the Special Pals animal shelter in Katy. In association with the The Snuggles Project, we will be knitting and crocheting therapy blankets for the homeless pets at the shelter. Considering the unusually cold winter we’re having, Special Pals is delighted to be receiving our blankets. They have set no limitations on size or color, so you can be as creative as you wish! A medium-size blanket requires about 700-900 yards of worsted-weight acrylic yarn, knit double-stranded using a size 11-13 needle. You may use any acrylic yarn of your choice, worsted-to-bulky-weight, in any color. Patterns for the simple Snuggle blankets (both knitted and crocheted) will be available at the meeting or can be downloaded in advance from The Snuggles Project website at SnugglesProject.org. We will also have on hand a small quantity of acrylic yarn that members may use to make their blankets, so arrive early if you need yarn. We hope to warm up as many of our furry friends at Special Pals as possible this winter, so please plan to join us in January for knitting, refreshments, prizes, and fun.
