Lesson 2 - First try - successful!

Recipe in Lesson 2 is sticky, even after kneading with additional flour, roughly 1/4 cup. After first rise and in the pan, still sticky but easier to handle. I used 1/2 cup of warm water right away with the yeast. Next time I know better. Also, I used a bowl with warm water underneath to speed up the rise. I am so pleased with the result. My previous breads did not taste as good and rose as much as this. I, also, used Beard on Bread by James Beard. Thank you so much Mr. floydm.
