I have just phoned Battersea Dogs and Cats Home to ask if they still need blankets. They still want them, especially smaller ones for cats. There is a pattern available, but I shall make up my own with 6in squares knitted on the diagonal with stripes from wool scraps, to be sewn together in a 24 in. square to form diamond patterns. I have got a bit bored with Innocent Smoothie bobble hats, have dozens to send. I like to knit in the evening, to stop me eating, but when GCs get older they do not want knitted garments, and I am a hot body, so don't wear jumpers/cardis.
