Designer Melanie Smith has captured my attention and reminded me of my sweet tooth with her newest pattern - Candy Corn Kitchen Towel. Maybe by adding one of these adorable towels to my kitchen, I can now avoid the holiday candy corn sugar coma. Or not. It may be too late for me.

Save yourself! Knit a kitchen towel or two in this candy corn theme and spread some harvest cheer! Or share one with a friend or teacher in honor of Halloween. Candy corn and kitchen towels make the world a wee bit sweeter!
