FINALLY Found Some Yarn I Love!

**  Update 10-21-10:  I got some more yarn in ... this 'candy corn' yarn is 100% cotton chenille.  Super thick and absorbant.  I had quite a few requests for these washcloths, so here's the listing if you're still interested:  Candy Corn Washcloths.  If you'd like to make some for yourself, here's the pattern url.  **



I've been looking for some new and different yarn to brighten up the handmade washcloths I stock in my shop.  And FINALLY I found it!  When I opened my USPS box yesterday, I began crocheting and loved the yarn so much my fingers wouldn't stop! 

Here's what I made and it's now in my ETSY shop:


Here's the free pattern:  Annabelle's Washcloths - Pattern

Her shop name is "Crochet 4 U 2 Dye 4" and here's her url:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/crochet4u2dye4?ref=top_trail.  And here are a few of her other yarns:

Love them!!! I am a big candy corn fan though, so that's no surprise. ;) Very very cute. If you could please add my party button or a link back to me within your post, that would be great. My blog is small, so I really rely on those link-backs. Thanks!

Visiting from NFF. Love those colors! Are your FOs 100% cotton, or are they a nylon/cotton blend. I knit my dishcloths, but it seems like Peaches and Cream doesn't hold up as well as it used to. Might have to try this yarn. Thanks. Following you now.
