Singular Stitches: Hockey Knitters KAL

Hockey Knitters KAL

I signed up for a new knitalong called the Hockey Knitters Knitalong (the button is in the right sidebar). While watching hockey games this season, everyone works on knitting projects for charity. I used to be a huge hockey fan, but got away from it. I've always meant to get back into watching, but never have. This is a great way to get back into watching games, and also to knit for a good cause.

I'm knitting for the Snugglie project I mentioned in yesterday's post. So last night, during the Pens-Devils game, I made the following snugglie for a local shelter:

I used double strands of acrylic yarn and a P(?) crochet needle. It's about 15"X18", perfect for a kitty to curl up on. Yes, it's crochet(and not knitting), but I had the correct crochet needle handy so I went with it (I also crochet faster than knitting). And it's cool that it woked out to be Pens colors, too!

Your kitty snuggly is coming along nicely. I'm sure that a lonely kitty will love it. :)

Some kitty will warm up to that I'm sure. I also am an animal lover and have a cat.

I'm sure any kitty would love one of those. I know mine would. So cool to be able to crochet - one craft I just can't master at all!
