Made this in about a week. Gave me something to do while the hubby watched the world cup!
US 7 size circular 24" needles
Peace Fleece brand wool in gray
less than one yard of sturdy fabric
matte board, plexiglass or timtex (or purse bottom from craft store)
Purchased the pattern as part of a kit on http://kpixie.com.
And, the watermelon was yummy.
