February 2009 KAL Starts February 16th!

Hey Guys! Get your needles and cotton ready...our next KAL is coming up! It will begin on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2009!

This KAL will be designed and hosted by me this month!

For this pattern you will all need Size US 6 or 7 (4 or 4.5mm), the needle size is really up to you...but if you are a loose knitter, I would strongly suggest a smaller needle size for you...even as small as US 5 (3.75mm) so your stitches really "POP" out better! When you knit loose, the "picture" stitches sometimes get lost with the background stitches. Remember...the tighter you knit, the better...so if you're not a tight knitter, try changing the size of your needles...let your needles do all the work for you :o)

You will need 1 ball of 100% worsted weight cotton. Any colour will do...this cloth will have somewhat of a Valentine Theme to it so feel free to use a shade of red or pink but if you haven't these colours on hand, no need to worry...any other colour will be fine!

This pattern will have knits and purls, and also knit 2 togethers and yarn overs. You can find some very helpful video tutorials here and here.

The instructions will be emailed daily as "special notice" to ensure that everyone gets them...if you are on daily digest and you don't want to wait for the digest to come in for your daily rows, you can always come to the Group Site to see the posted rows. As soon as I post them they will appear on the group! I will also be posting the links for the daily rows on our Group Blog so feel free to check our blog daily.

After I post them to the group, I will make a text copy of them just in case anyone misses the post, and I will put them in the group FILES section under, "Our Group Knit Alongs"...just look for "February 2009 KAL ~ Designed by Rachel".

Feel free to email me with any questions you may have about our next KAL!

Looking forward to next Monday Morning!

Hugs,
:o)
Rachel
