Rescue Yarn For The Rescue Critters

I let the word slip out that I love to knit and that everything I make and sell would be donated to the Love Your Pet Expo Sanctuary For Special Needs Animals. Since then, the yarn donations have been pouring in and I can't turn away even the tiniest scrap (I think I heard my family whispering about an intervention). Bags of yarn now fill the bedroom and every inch of extra storage space in our temporary living quarters (we really need to find a house SOON!)

In order to keep from being buried alive in bags of yarn, I am knitting all-purpose thick-knit mats as fast as I can. Thick-knitting is a technique I developed just for this situation. I can use just about any kind of yarn scraps to make super-thick cushiony mats for sit-upons, rugs, cat beds, etc. It's fun and easy and would use up a normal knitter's "stash" in no time. For me, it has become an act of self-defense. THIS YARN HAS TO GO!

In the interest of self-preservation, I'm offering $10 off any thick-knit mat in my store, INCLUDING SPECIAL ORDERS! TODAY ONLY!

These mats are available in my OLA store and so is the ebook for instructions to make your own.

Thick-knitting uses large needles and 3-4 strands of yarn. This allows me to combine yarns in a variety of ways to create interesting patterns and effects. Each mat is unique.

Here is just a tiny sample of the yarn I have available.
