Alright guys! Let's do this. I hope you don't think that I'm taking the easy way out here but I just glanced at the intro post I wrote the last time we did a summer blanket KAL 2 years ago and it says everything I want to say! Here it is:
We're gearing up for an awesome summer knit along and I'm super excited about it! Blankets are the perfect summer knitting project because they can be as mindless or as challenging as you want. They can be as small or as large as you want. They can be as subtle or as colourful as you want. There is no end to the construction possibilities. Frankly, they are the perfect customizable knit. Knitting a warm wooly blanket in the summer might seem counter intuitive, but so many awesome blanket patterns are knit in pieces and then seemed, making them the perfect project to chip away at in small bits over the course of many afternoons lounging in the sun.
The Dates: Cast on Thursday, June 21th and cast off Saturday, September 22nd (that's the entire summer season!)
Rules: Knit or crochet ANY blanket you want in ANY TFA yarn.
Tags: Tag your project on Ravelry with TFABlanketKAL2018 and be sure to hasthtag #TFABlanketKAL2018 if you post pics on social media so I can see them!
Inspiration: Check out our pinterest boards for loads of blanket inspiration here.
Fun: There will of course be some great prizes too, because that’s always more fun!

I'll have a more official announcement post coming later this week but... there will be an Etsy Update on Friday June 1st at 12pm ET (noon) featuring lots of OOAK palettes to get your creative blanket juices flowing!
I have no idea what I'll be knitting, but I'm excited to start thinking about it!
