Never crocheted before? no problemo! Pick yourself up a hook (I recommend size 4.5mm), some basic yarn (nothing fancy), curl up with a cup of tea and hit up youtube (search 'how to crochet') and enjoy! Crocheted dishcloths are awesome beginner projects because a.) screw up all you want, it's only a dishcloth and b.) it's a square, doesn't get much easier than that!
If you plan on making dishcloths make sure to buy cotton yarn. I used Patons Pure organic cotton, which offered an amazzzzing colour selection but unfortunately has since been discontinued :(
On this cold Sunday evening, give it a try! Let me know how you make out :)
Bye for now,
