 These wash cloths have just been posted to ETSY. The stars are $5, and the circles are $4. They are made with 100% USA grown cotton.

 This is a star shaped hand towel that I finished last night. It's based on a star shaped granny square that I made previously. I modified it, making it bigger and giving it a lip on the backside.
All you have to do is flip it over, put your finger under the lip in the point, and you can clean hard to reach areas, like around faucets, and in corners. It would also be useful if using the towel to wash around your eyes.

I'm planning to put these small towels up for sale on ETSY. Made from 100% cotton, they are easy to clean. Just throw them in the wash. I only have the one made right now. I better get cracking!

Got the pattern for this dishcloth off of Lyon Brand Yarn's website. I of course tweaked it a bit. Their example is round, while mine... is not. It's about 10 inches across. I made this one with acrylic yarn, which is fine for a sample, but not for actual washing. I may have to go to the yarn shop....

Here is number 18 from "99 Granny Squares". I use odds and ends of yarn to make these squares. You can see where I ran out of a color and used another to finish the row. Twice.
