Grrr Washcloth

Knitting, project 159. Completed 8/9/2008.

Project notes: This is the one and only time I make this super-cute washcloth for 3 reasons: 1) Metal needles. 2) Mercerized cotton yarn. 3) Loop stitch. All these factors are hard on the hands. But it is cute! I used a Sharpie marker to draw the face, instead of embroidery.
