Washcloth mania

Quite a few UK knitters seem to be getting into knitting washcloths this summer, and I've been inspired by their results.

I was tempted into trying out the Garterlac dishcloth and I'm really pleased with it! Although I've done it in colours complimentary to our bathroom, so we'll be using it as a flannel instead. :-)

This is my first attempt at modular knitting too. I love the result, but it's not something I'd find particularly portable as I'd keep losing my place!

I've taken a liking to the Lily Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn, which I've been buying on ebay. I especially love the variegated colourways, which I think look great in a modular knitting pattern. The washcloth above is done in the "Desert Rising" colourway. I wish I could try all the variegated ones...

Anyone know of a similar UK yarn?

You can get peaches and creme cotton (same kind of thing) from the Crafty Cottage. But she's had a sign up saying they've had a bereavement in their family and she's away for the last week or two so not sure when she'll be back. http://www.crafty-cottage.co.uk/

They're addictive, aren't they? :) The Garterlac looks great - I'll have to try that pattern!
