Knitting a Dish Cloth

I`ve chosen to make a dish cloth this week.  I already know how to knit and mummy had bought me some 100% cotton to knit with a while ago.  Although none of us remember Laura or her family knitting a dish cloth, we thought it would make a lovely colourful addition to our Little House (it ‘s orange!).  It is made of real cotton wool and will hang from a hook in the house.  I put 32 stitches on the needle and using knit stitch, made a square dish cloth:

This dish cloth will be used by L10 (Mrs Ingalls) and me (Mary Ingalls) to clean the dishes, but first we will use it to cover our  sour dough starter for making a loaf of sour dough without dried yeast.  It is perfect for this because it is loosely knitted:
