Finally Some FO's!!

This is my sons' dishcloth. I think it turned out really nice. He said I could have it, after all... :) I don't think I will use it for dishes, though. Since I pouted so much when he said he wasn't making it for me. ;) I'll have to find a pretty knick knack to put on it in a special place. :D
And, Heeeeere's Dora! (As Tampa Doll says...) ;p This tote bag with Dora was totally inspired by Tampa Doll's Dora afghan. She helped me with the graph, and has been my cheerleader and encouraging me along the way. :) I don't know if I would have taken on graph crochet if I hadn't seen how cute the afghans turned out. Now, I had some moments while I was making this.... Mostly because my yarn would get all tangled up and I had four or five skeins going at one time during this project. I would just put it down when I started getting frustrated. The other thing was I wasn't so sure it was going to look that good. But now that it is finished and all sewn together, I am really happy I stuck with it. I hope my niece will like it as much as I do.

And the finished Big Sister side. I still have to line it. Which will be sewing.... Ugh... But. I have decided I'm not even going to attempt to mail it until after the holidays are over. The post office is insane. So it isn't a big rush to finish. I am so glad I got this finished as fast as I have.

Thank you everyone! I am so glad it is done. Well all except the lining... I don't know what my son will do next now, Mimi. He was just saying he wanted to make something else this afternoon. So I went to Crochet Pattern Central and went through a bunch of stuff... 'How about a pencil cup?' 'No'... 'How about this...' He was thinking about doing squares for an afghan. But then he got into my fabric. I told him, 'My sewing machine is broken....' I'm sure on winter break we'll get him started on some squares for an afghan. ;) I was thinking about the Crochet Dude's 'Monet', it's bigger squares that you put together. (Plus the fact that it's made by a guy...)
