What's The Knitting Equivalent To Crochet's Granny Square?

I do not crochet. Heard that the granny square is one of the very easy and fast way to produce items when crocheting. Can you think of anything like that when knitting?

Thanks in advance.

OK, how many of you have ever done this?

I was doing a gauge swatch last night and the instructions specified stockinette stitch. I had already purled half a row where it should have been knit, so there was this weird rib where it should not have been. Watching TV then, I purled an entire row that should have been knit. I guess I just get into things and forget where I am.

Can anyone tell me what happened to the button that you could click on for the members list? I haven't used it for ages and couldn't find it when I needed it tonight. In the meantime, does anyone have any fibre contacts in Barcelona? I will be there for a few days in early September and would love to connect with local men knitters and spinners. Thanks for any suggestions - Phil

FO: Baby sleeper

A friend just adopted a newborn baby, so I thought I'd knit something for him. I chose this cute drawstring kimono from a pattern search on Ravelry. The day I heard about the baby, we were taking our school kids on a field trip and I knew I'd have some time to cast on and get started, so I popped out quickly to my LYS, but they weren't open yet.
