A Knitted Washcloth – Yes Another One!

I have several knitting projects going on, but they are take concentration – but sometimes I want to knit but not concentrate. Knitting for me is like meditation and some evenings I just want to get lost in my knitting. I found this pattern off one of the knitting pattern emails I receive and thought I would give it a try. It is simple, fast and takes very little concentration! This can also be used as a dishcloth.
