I decided this year to make an afghan for each of the kids for their birthdays. I had JC look at a few patterns to get an idea of what he liked and colors. Since I like this pattern too, this is the one I selected to do. It's from an old Vanna White book I found. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn, which is washable, I thought that would be best since they have 2 kids!
I finished it with time to spare, his birthday isn't for another 2 weeks. That will give me the summer to work on Autumns for her birthday in September. She wants something with "stars", oh boy!
