Why? Because dishcloth knitting is some of the best travel knitting there is. It's worked flat, small (and therefor easily contained), and because dishcloths are just great.
If you're especially travel-minded, you can also make these patterns with a Knook because Knit Dishcloths has instructions for either. You'd have even less of a risk of dropping stitches, and you'd have some excellent Knooking practice.
And, if you take I-40, you should bring an extra skein of yarn. You might have time to make TWO of these great dishcloths.

Ask me how I know!
I really wish I'd packed an extra skein of cotton yarn....
