Hilly's Watermelon Round Ripple
WHEW! I finally got Hilly's Round Ripple Done!! We named it 'Watermelon', because when I had the first color bands done, it looked like a slice of watermelon. This was an on again, off again project. It kept getting pushed aside so I could finish other projects. She was very understanding about it all, though. She was so happy when I walked into her room when she was laying on her bed watching TV and I covered her up with it. She had no idea I had been working on it when she was in school and after she went to bed. I wanted it to be a surprise when I finally got it done. It ended up being about 70 inches point to point. I used Red Heart Kids yarn in the colors of Hot Pink and Lime, and Hobby Lobby's Yarn 'I Love This Yarn' in White. It is still a little too warm for her to use it, but soon the temperatures will be getting to where she will be able to use it, along with her monster 3 strander.
