Kane's Round Ripple

Here is the Round Ripple Afghan I made for Nancy's Grandson Kane. I took some of Hobby Lobby's 'I Love This Yarn' to Florida with me, just in case I needed it. We went to AC Moore (a store we don't have where I live) and I came across some yarn in pound bags. It was a mystery known fiber or weight listed on the bags. I saw a bag of blue and white twist, thought it would make a nice Round Ripple, so I bought it. I used it along with the 'I Love This Yarn' and this is what I came up with. When I started working on it, Kane (he's 4 1/2) stood there in fascination, trying to figure out how I was taking yarn, a hook and making it into a RR. I told him I was making a blanket, I asked him how big it should be, he held out his arms and said "this big". So that is how big I made it. He didn't know it was for him until I was almost done. He got a big grin on his face, asked how much longer it would take to finish it, then said OK!!

On the day we left Florida for them to bring me home and be in Ohio for the birth of their 7th grandchild, I showed it to him, told him it was all done, and asked him if he wanted to take it on the long car ride to Ohio, then back to Florida. He said "no, he wanted to leave it at MeMe's (Nancy's) house so it would be safe". So when they get back home, he will have his pretty Round Ripple waiting for him.
