Our recommended color is Pink (I used a gold color) but any solid color you like is fine. The next two KAL’s are holiday related so red, pink, white, yellow would be good colors.
What I do have so far on colors in February: Pink for the 1st and Pale Pink or Yellow for the 20th. Remember that February is the month of “love”. Solids turn out better on this type of KAL. Day 1 and day 2 will be posted on our blog tomorrow. You will have a photo tomorrow on our blog of the rows after day 1.
Everyday rows will be sent via an email; I will be "Replying" to the first email so all of the rows will be on one email at the end of the KAL. If you need help, check How to Knit | KnittingHelp.com for any assistance or write an email to the group for help. For day 1 and day 2 of rows, I will post photos.
Using Lifelines will help with any project. If you aren't sure what that is, there is plenty of info on the Internet about it but it is basically where you put thread or thin yarn through a row already worked, designating that all the rows to that point are error free. You should document what row you put the lifeline in so you have a point of reference. If you make any error after that point, you know you are OK with the previous rows anyway.
This KAL is a Lace Seasonal cloth.
