lifelines

I did a lifeline once before, and used a different color of yarn. It was a disaster, it shed blue lint into my white stitches, and made that row lumpy and big... SO, I know what NOT to use.
Ihave used narrow satin ribbon for lifelines--it doesn't seem to stretch the stitches, and is so smooth it is easy to remove. linknit41
