I have finally finished the blue 'ripple' crocheted blanket! (there it is, adorning the bed in my son's former bedroom (aka my craft room ;-p)
Although I enjoyed making it, I'm glad it's finally done, with all the loose ends sewn in and neatened off. It seemed to take quite a while, but then I remember it was interrupted with a few other items.....
The grey cable jumper is finished, but awaiting blocking and seaming:
(spot the foam-matting squares in assorted colours to the right - actually, they're a set of 'hopscotch' tiles - a bargain from the kids' aisle in Tesco's, ready to slot together and pin out my knitting!)
I also managed to do a 'baby ripple' for my daughter's friend, who's expecting a little 'ankle-biter' in August:

However, I'm grateful to Una over at Great Balls Of Wool for making me aware of a charity knitting outlet I can contribute to....so it looks like I'll soon have a load of new projects on the 'go'! :-)
So, what's everyone else got on the needles...?
