Project 7 - Washcloths for Baby

These are fun to knit for a beginner. Knit a square in a stitch pattern from one of the Harmony series, or buy a pattern book. Given that cotton's not elastic, this wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

Patterns - Baby Washcloths
Sources - Kitchen Bright Dishcloths & Dishcloths from the Heart by Leisure Arts
Yarn - Sugar 'n Cream -- 100% cotton for multiple washings -- Lazy Daisy #02718, etc. -- 120 yds solid, 95 yds mix
Learnings - Knitting diagonal, new patterns (ex., diamonds), long-tail cast-on, knitting with cotton
