CHALLENGE #33-2021 

Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services

Oshkosh, Wisconsin

Christine Ann is a repeat shelter for us and they have enjoyed everything they have received.  Although they don't have a pet program, they do have a shelter dog, Ross.  He is well loved by everyone and he especially enjoyed receiving the blanket that was made just for him and got very excited about it.  That means we'll send him a nice new one!  Christine Ann incorporates knitting and crocheting in their self-care support group.  This group is a wonderful place for their clients to focus on themselves and find different ways to care for themselves physically and mentally. Knitting and crocheting definitely fits into that category.  We are all very aware of the benefits received from picking up our own needles and hooks.

Pet blankets may be knitted, crocheted or sewn, but must be washable. Knit or crocheted blankets should be a tight weave, fairly thick (use several strands together or a single strand of #5 or #6 bulky yarn.) Suitable fabrics are denim, flannel, heavy cotton with batting in between layers and stitched from corner to corner so the batting doesn't bunch up when washed.
