I'm Done

I just finished Rachel's Knitting Room KAL. We did a regular size cloth and a mini cloth.

I LOVE the Pattern... I liked the mini cloth. It was a lot of work and my hands hurt from the small needles.
I don't see myself making another mini cloth for awhile.
But I need to do it once RIGHT!!!
The big cloth is made with P&C HOT Pink with size 5 needles.
The mini cloth is made with size 000 needles and size 10 yellow crochet thread.

Now I'm taking a dishcloth break to work on a crocheted doily.
