Get your needles and cotton ready...our next KAL is coming up!
It will begin on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st...1 week from today!
For this pattern it's been suggested by the designer that you will need:
- 1 skein 100% Cotton
- Size US 7/4.5 mm needles
- 2 stitch markers(optional)
For the colour I'm leaving it all up to you guys! Whatever your little heart desires, whatever you have on hand, whether it be a SOLID cotton, a VARIEGATED cotton, a STRIPED cotton, a SPECKLED cotton, or even a combination of colours! I'm using 3 different colours for mine just for funzies! I have chosen to use the colours SHRIMP, PERSIMMON, and GERANIUM. If you choose to use more than one colour for you kal I will write a little note for you to let you know when to change colours...it's not necessary at all to use more than one colour for this kal, I am just choosing to for something fun and different!
When I test knit this pattern, I chose to use 4mm knitting needles and it turned out really nice...the pattern calls for 4.5mm but don't be afraid to use something smaller for a better stitch definition.
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 as well as daily progress pics so feel free to check our blog.
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 "September 2009 KAL ~ Hosted by Rachel".
Feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have about our next KAL!
Looking forward to next Monday Morning!
