If you have cotton yarn, wash cloths are great to practice tension on too. You can wash your face or dishes with something imperfect, they don't care, and you'll have something smaller that you can bind off and say, "I knitted it myself!"

Yes! And you can play with all different kinds of stitch patterns, too. Good thinking Gramma!

I absolutely did not appreciate wash cloths when I first started knitting. It took a while for me to realize just how valuable a tool they can be. Now I them!
