Done Ripplin'

Hello! It's been a bit quiet in my corner of blogland lately. I have been trying to do some of that home-work-life-crochet balance thing and get some of the things that desperately need doing around the house sorted. To be honest crochet has taken over much of my life (and spare bedroom) in the last couple of years and things are getting decidedly neglected around the house, the garden too. No pretty flowers planted this year, just weeds in the tubs and the grass is taking over. I seem to have been waging a one woman war on dandelions too... and losing
So I was consciously taking a break from crocheting, sitting on my hands rather than picking up new yarn and starting anything. Well nearly, I have got a new phone (yay) and it needed a quick case making so I knocked this up last week.
I used drops cotton merino, because it was easy to get to in the chaos that is my yarn stash and I still LOVE the colours
Apart from making that I have done very little hooky in an attempt to free up some time. Of course there are always the late evenings, before bedtime, settled in front of the TV, so out came my ripple blanket to finally get finished.
There were really not many rows left to do but they seemed to take forever. In a final push last night I got the last stitch done. There are still all the ends (so many ends) to sew in and I am as yet undecided on whether to do a border or not but I am done ripplin'!
 Hmm perhaps I should have been mowing the lawn and not finishing that, nah. I am so happy to have it done but I can't quite believe it. It seems to have been a permanent fixture beside me for so long now It will be strange not to be able to just pick it up for some mindless crochet. :)
