Wrapped cotton

Wash cloth, cotton, garter stitch, size 3 bamboo cable needle, 24 in.

This is the knitting that I keep around the office so that on days like this, when I forget to pack my knitting, I have something to knit on my lunch break.  I've had this cotton for years and tried to think of what to do, and now I'm happy to make cloths and towels for the kitchen.  My sources for these things have grown too old to knit, so I am taking my turn.
