I'd be up for that. I'm just knitting up a chunky jumper for ds1 using up some stash, but it's fast as it's such heavy yarn - started and finished the cabled front yesterday, started the back today and will finish this evening and might even get started on a sleeve - I reckon a sleeve a day and I can probably sew it up on the 2nd day, so I'll be able to squeeze in a cloth.

I've not knitted any before, but it's certainly something that's needed around the house and I was photographing some of my stash for Ravelry (haven't got it up yet and still have a few boxes worth to go) and found some Rowan cotton that will probably be suitable - only one skein, but I'm guessing that's enough for one dishcloth.

I knitted a few squares for an afghan a while ago and I'm guessing it's the same thing really.

I can't be in the challenge because I already finished and need to get some more cotton yarn before I can do another one. But here's my first (very simple) dishcloth.

Well you better have a total beginners category - and make the deadline at least July if I have any chance of joining in

Thanks for the patterns.

I managed to buy some cotton today, so I will make a start.
