May 20th 2017 KAL days 1-3 plus a photo

Isn't that Rosie a beauty! 

May 20th 2017 KAL Day 1:
Our recommended color is Lavender but any solid color you like is fine. 
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 need help, check How to Knit | 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 KAL is a Picture Lace cloth.
Level of difficulty:   Easy +

Day 1 and 2:
Materials:  1 skein of cotton yarn; Lavender (I used blue)
#6 US Knitting Needle. 
Cast On:  39 Stitches
Notes:           K2Tog = Knit 2 together
                        SSK = Slip 1, Slip 1, Knit 2 together
                        P1 tbl = P1 through the back loop (check knitting help sites to watch)
                        P2Tog tbl = Purl 2 together through the back loops
                        SKP = Slip 1, Knit 1, pass slip stitch over
                        P2SSO = pass 2 slip stitches over
Row 1:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Row 2:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Row 3:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Row 4:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Repeat rows 1-4 one more time.
Row 1:           (RS) (K1, P1) x 2, K31, (P1, K1) x 2.
Row 2:           (WS) (K1, P1) x 2, P31, (P1, K1) x 2.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 three (3) more times.

I did two days at once for uniformity.  There is no photo at this point because it is just stockinette stitch.
