How do I join the knit-along?
Anyone can join. It's as simple as picking up some yarn and needles and following sections of a pattern over a given month. Invite others to join, it's fun to knit together. You might want to follow this blog by clicking the button on the left or subscribing through bloglines so you get the new posts right away.
How often will you update?
I will post up 10 lines to the pattern about 6 times a month. Look for the KrisKnits KAL logo at the bottom of a blog post. There you will find a new part of the pattern.
What will we be making?
Every month will feature a new full sized 10x10" picture dishcloth that corresponds in theme to each month. At the end of each KAL you will have a beautiful cloth that you can use in your home or share with someone else.
How do I share photos of my progress?
There will be a pattern for every month on Ravelry to share your progress with others. I would love if everyone added a new project there so we can see how many of us are knitting together. I only ask that you do not post a picture of the cloth as your main photo for the project. It can be anything else. This way the design stays a mystery for those who wish to keep it that way.
- 1 Ball of Lily's Sugar'n Cream Solid
- US #3/3.25mm needles*
- Tapestry Needle *I used a smaller needle size to obtain denser fabric and to make the picture stand out more.
