This is only a test. Had this been an actual Dish Rag Tag dishcloth, it would have turned out much better (not to mention that my team would be disqualified for starting early).

This turned out to my my first successful provisional cast-on. I did make a little mistake in the grafting, but it doesn't bug me enough that I'll rip and redo it. The only really bad thing? It doesn't meet the regulation size (good thing I test knit it before the race!) of 9"; it's only 8" across. So next time I'll add a few more stitches.
Sigh. I don't think I'll ever get the hang of this "frequent posting" thing.
