The Journey of the Mystery Machine

Back in 2011 I did a series of guest posts on the Crochet Liberation Front's Blog. They sponsored the People's Choice Award my Afghan won at the CGOA Competition in September of 2011. This was the first design I ever sent out into the world, and it also won First Place Afghans. Four days after winning I submitted my very first design to be published, and started a whole new career.

When I went to write the story of making my son Griffin his Mystery Machine, it turned out to be over 2000 words. So it turned into a 3 part story...

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

ETA 2016: The website where this series was originally published has been taken down. I will be republishing each of these posts on my own blog later this fall.


Comments from original October 2011 post:
  1. Yay i'm so excited to read about this!
    I actually had a dream last night that I went to a party and was stuck outside talking to all these drunk people but I REALLY just wanted to get inside and see this wonderful piece of art.
    How weird is that? haha! Seriously, this afghan really stuck in my mind.
  2. Wow, that's cool! Keep watching my blog, I'm working on several designs teaching the technique I used on the Mystery Machine which will be published later this year...

    Also, I realized that all the links in this post were no longer working, I assume because the CLF changed servers. I have fixed them now, so should be able to find the posts.
  3. Wow! Love it! I just read all the parts and the job you did was fantastic!
  4. I would love to get this pattern , but the links are not working. You did such a great job on this!
