Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth is a great pattern. You can learn and get used to yarn overs (yo) for increasing and then work on doing decreases. It's versatile too. Use it to make a dishcloth or washcloth or make it bigger and make a blanket, work just the first half and then bind off and you have a triangular shawl. There are lots of other patterns you can use to practice all kinds of stitch patterns. It's kind of fun really.
You can't knit the left sock first. Ever.
