Thrifty Thursday: More yarn

Earlier this year, I posted about some yarn I'd found at a thrift store. I've been crocheting cat blankets for the local shelter as I can.

I'm still looking for yarn, and recently found two more sacks.

This sack cost $2.

This sack cost $7, and had about 10 skeins in it.

I loved that a bunch of the yarn in that sack had labels with cats on them.

Here are three of the cat blankets I've completed.

I love the blankets!

They are beautiful blankets. Seems like you have lots of home making skills that were commom a couple of generations ago but have sadly slipped by the wayside. Do you sell your blankets or are they strictly donated?

Goldie, I have given blankets as gifts (mostly baby, but I've given wedding and anniversary afghans too), but primarily donate or gift them. I could never hope to recoup the time I put into them financially. At least by donating them to the shelter I know a cat will enjoy them.

Those are lovely Rene! Would you be willing to share the pattern? I've got some leftover yarn...maybe I could do something good with it.

Lucy loves being on the porch when I'm out on the couch. I love seeing her enjoy things indoors.
