In between knitting projects I like to knit dish cloths. The are a quick project that doesn't take alot of concentration and results are quick. They make great hostess gifts or something to add to a gift. I knitted up a half dozen of these for a bridal shower and the bride-to-be was thrilled.
I found a couple of free patterns for different dish cloths from the traditional pattern found on the band of the cotton yarn used for dish cloths.
This pattern is called "Orient Point Washcloth" by Lion Brand. The pattern is free if you sign up for a free membership at the Lion Brand Website.
Here's another one - also a free pattern from the Lion Brand website - called "Rocky Point Beach Washcloth"
