Being sick all weekend, I went through the stash and found some Sugar'n Cream yarn ("Summer Splash") and started up a small hand towel for our kitchen:

I did a 5x5 basketweave stitch, and when I thought I would run out of yarn (I wasn't even close, btw) I started decreasing at the beginning and end of each row.  I feel very fancy for pulling out my Stitch N Bitch and actually realizing the difference between right and left decreases. 

After I got it to where I wanted a hook, I bound off all but four stitches and did an I-cord and strapped it on the other side.

I used US 7 needles.

Easy as Shari's pie!

I never even THOUGHT about knitting a kitchen towel in cotton yarn.  I've done wash cloths for the kitchen but I think this is an awesome idea!
Looks great, too!   Wink

I think this turned out great.  I really like the color of the yarn you used.  It's super cute.
