Blanket-A-Long with Purly Shell Pirates!!Heather and Danielle, the Purly Shell Pirates, asked if we wanted to host a Temperature Blanket-A-Long and in true BlackSheep fashion, we said yes and no. HAHA! Yes, we will do blankets but they may not be true temperature blankets. Let's be honest, Kelli & Tina like projects that you can complete a little more quickly. However, we love the idea of a Blanket-A-Long so we are joining in.
This is going to be a VERY relaxed CAL/KAL/SAL that you can join at any time. We will have a Facebook group where we can chat and share inspiration. Tina is giving away her Grandma's Flowered Afghan pattern to participants and Kelli is giving away her BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long pattern. We will also have kits available in various colors, yarns, and palettes available. Plus, we decided it would be fun to have a stitch-a-long option too. Tina will be stitching a monthly square and you can find those kits here. If this sounds like fun to you, you can join the Facebook Group here or find out more info here.
