Comments:  I'm not very good at making neatly turned short rows, so I thought I little practice might be in order.  Got a little carried away with it, and now it will make a nice dishcloth or facecloth or something.  I have yet to graft it together because as I told Mike, grafting after midnight is never a good idea!  :)
