July 1st 2016 KAL Days 1-2 with photo after day 1

It is time for another KAL.  Hope you like it.  Our recommended color is pink but any solid color you like is fine.  Solids turn out better on this type of KAL.  Day 1 and day 2 will be posted on our blog tomorrow.  You will have a photo tomorrow on our blog of the rows after day 1.

Everyday rows will be sent via an email; I will be "Replying" to the first email so all of the rows will be on one email at the end of the KAL.  If you are a "Special Notice" member, you will need to get your rows for day 2 through final from our blog or checking our site for the "updated" emails. Yahoo doesn't provide for "reply" messages to be sent to the Special Notice members.
If you need help, check
How to Knit | KnittingHelp.com for any assistance or write an email to the group for help.  For day 1 and day 2 of rows, I will post photos.

Using Lifelines will help with any project. If you aren't sure what that is, there is plenty of info on the Internet about it but it is basically where you put thread or thin yarn through a row already worked, designating that all the rows to that point are error free. You should document what row you put the lifeline in so you have a point of reference. If you make any error after that point, you know you are OK with the previous rows anyway

This is a Pattern cloth.

1 skein Cotton yarn (Pink recommended)
#6 US Knitting needles
