Knitting for MTAR
We have some lovely supporters who knit fingerless gloves for us to sell. These are very popular with both staff and dog owners both male and female. We would love to receive some more if these if anyone would like to knit them - they can be plain and or colourful.
If you want to decorate some of them get some old denim and cut with pinking scissors into a small square and set tear drop bead on these. Then stitch these on to each glove and the hat. The tear bead would be a reference to our name - Many Tears and the beads can be bought really cheaply on Ebay. A pattern for these is below
In addition to the gloves we are always looking for people who would like to knit coats to keep our dogs warm in the winter especialy costs for our medium and larger sized dogs. We also sell some of the coats at events to help raise funds.
The weather in Wales can be really cold in the winter months and although our kennels all have heat lamps many of our dogs need a little extra help to keep them warm. Plain jumpers without buttons etc are best but all are gratefully received. Unfortunately we cannot use crochet coats or blankets as we find the dogs claws can get caught in them.
If you can post your knitted items to Many Tears Animal Rescue, Cwmlogin House, Cefneithin, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire SA14 7HB that would be wonderful.
