Welcome to our September KAL!
Day One photo and rows:
 
Materials:
Knitting Needles:  size 7, or your preferred size for dishcloth knitting
1 ball Cotton Yarn – your choice of color – solid, or variegated [which works well with this pattern, or self-striping yarn]
 
Abbrev.:
K – knit
P – purl
YO – yarn over
st – stitches
turn – in this pattern, you will knit the specified number of stitches, then turn your work around, the same as if you were at the end of your row and ‘turn’ your needles to continue knitting as usual – just ignore the fact that there are stitches left on that needle   [need a visual?  see Janet's suggested site:  www.knittinghelp.com]

Good morning, fellow knitters!
   Hope you are almost ready for our mid-month August KAL ~
Janet has asked for me to host this KAL while she is on vacation,
I know you all wish her a wonderful and relaxing time away -
Let's make her proud when she returns and sees all our dishcloths
posted on our yahoo group photo albums!

just a reminder for you -

this is your supply list:
 - 1 skein cotton yarn, suggested color Blue - tho any solid color will look good
 - Straight Needles, size 5 -
or size needles you are comfortable with and have on hand,
suitable for dishcloths

 This is a picture cloth.
Lifelines are good, no matter what you knit - not just for lacy patterns,
but any way you can check your knitting on any pattern is a good thing!

I will be posting photos of Day 1 and Day 2 knitted rows on my blog, which you can find beneath my signature below.
I will see you at the start of our KAL, tomorrow -
get ready to knit!
Linda
