Immortalising my other love in knitting

I've long been a lover of the VW Beetle. After collecting models, pictures, teapots, cushions, badges, clothing and many other things in the form of the cute bug car that was created by Ferdinand Porsche back in 1931, there was nothing I wanted more than owning the real thing. 

After wanting a real vintage model of my own since I was 10, and collecting VolksWorld Magazines for years, I will get my own air-cooled wreck and faithfully restore it. But with a family to ferry around and no garage to house a car I needed a reliable automobile. So what better car to get than a 2 litre new style VW Beetle. 

I've had him for over 4 years and love him just as much now as I did when I first saw him on the forecourt of the dealership. He was my biggest impulse buy! 

I do still hanker after the original style bug, and I will have one soon when funds and space allow. I can't wait until the day when I strip apart the engine and rebuild it. For now though I have created a knitted cushion immortalising my favourite car.

This pattern is available to purchase for just 1.50 here.

I hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I enjoyed designing it.

Pursuing the ideal path is not covered with rose flower diameter, is straightforward unimpeded broad road, not be in smooth water sea. This is a road full of hardships and dangers of sand road. We must go step by step, endure the soles of the feet of the pain and other irony, resist the external distractions. Maybe there will be the occasional faint give up study, don't give up, don't let your life become comfortable walking, don't let your life become commonplace, don't let your life regret.

A few points: Most of the Replica Rolex Watches non-wheeled carry-on Pharmaceutical Equipment bags are not available at REI and any serious one-bag shopper will probably not look there. (REI Replica Cartier Watches might carry 1 or Fake Rolex Watches 2 different bags). And one of the many reasons first time one-baggers get discouraged is that they are not taught how to pack correctly and try to take too much.
