Once you have cast on your stitches, and you start to knit, the first row you knit is the RS (right side). I usually take a small scrap of yarn and slip it into a stitch on the RS of the knitting but I do NOT tie a knot. I just make two loops and tie a bow. This way I always know at a glance which is the RS and which is the WS. It is easily removed once the piece is finished being knit.
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?
