Recently I finished knitting another one of these:
This is the Rubber Ducky face cloth (free Ravelry download).
And I'm working on a set of potholders like this one for a friend's birthday:
These are crocheted with a special "thermal" stitch that makes the fabric double thickness. You can see a video tutorial here. I learned this stitch from my mother and my dad's cousin.
As the friend's birthday is tomorrow, I need to go and finish it up. Pictures later so watch this space.
