So, I'm in residence in university, and one of our neighbours is a lovely guy who keeps making cupcakes/muffins for our house.  He's into Buffy the Vampire slayer, Dr. Who and a couple of other things.  I was thinking of knitting a dishcloth for him for Winter break - but dunno what to make.

Even if you did that and purled the stitches instead of changing colours.
Would make it less darning in ends for a dishcloth and you'd have more of a "optical illusion" kind of cloth.

I'm wicked late on this reply. But I had to chime in as a guy and point out that I'd rather have a hat or scarf than a dishcloth. Of the listed options, wrist warmers are the only other thing I'd have a use for. But that' s because my workshop is cold and I wear them when working there in the winter.
