I have been making this afghan for Tyler (my nephew who is due in a few months) and I have been thinking about him and how much I love him the whole time I have been crocheting it. I wanted to be sure that it was packed full of love and warmth. But even though I have never met him I already love him BIG. and that BIG part went into the blanket... So I have used up a few skeins of yarn and I go to my sister's house to show her this beautiful piece of love I have made. She looks at it and asks me who it is for. I told her it was for little baby Ty. She asks me where I got the pattern.
Pattern ~ What pattern... I mean come on now I only know one stitch and I am fairly certain that they don't have a single crochet pattern available. Well she points out to me that it is rather large (what do I know what size baby afghans are supposed to be.) and takes it over to Alicia's twin bed to try it on there... Nope too big hit the ground on both sides. SO low a behold I am pulling it apart and starting again. The good side of this (and there are many) I won't need to use nearly as much of the $10 a skein yarn AND it won't even take me as long to make... I am after all hoping to have it done by Sunday (the super secret shower day) Wish me luck!
