I promised to tell you the story about the Cars Afghan that I made for my new grandson.
(By the way he was born on May 7, weight 6 lbs. 9 oz. 18 inches long. He was three weeks early.)
I always make an afghan as a gift for the baby shower. And, of course, if it is for a family member it has to be special. I asked my daughter-in-law and son what was the theme for the baby's room. At first they said they didn't know and would get back to me. They decided on the Cars Movie them. Since I know my son loves Mater (the tow truck), I thought that was the main theme in the room. So I go on line looking for the pattern for Mater. I found it - thank you cozyconcepts. I ordered the pattern and was planning what yarns and what colors, etc. You know all of the things you get together to make a project. I was so proud of myself. I was even going to be able to use up some of my stash - YEAH!! Wrong :(
Here is the special afghan for my new grandson.
