After I got pregnant it suddenly became incredibly important to me that I have a well rounded first aid kit...I don't know exactly why, it just seemed impossible to be motherly without one. So, I obsessed for weeks looking for and writing down natural cures, finding the perfect box for bandaids etc., and somewhere along the way I saw a recommendation to have red washcloths in your kit for tending to younger children so the blood on the cloth doesn't scare them (or their mamas!;)). Genius.
So even though I had a million other things to do to prepare for a baby, I found myself knitting these. They are just simple garter stitch cloths, nothing fancy. I casted on 36 stitches and knit in straight garter stitch. I slipped the first stitch of each row for a smoother end and they ended up 8" by 8". They are incredibly simple and incredibly plain, but I love them.
