Still here!

Wow, long time since I last blogged!
Let me think, have I finished Silver Belle....of course not. She is nearly there, I am on the button bands, but while it's the summer, I feel I won't wear her, so I am fully intending to finish her for the winter. THIS WINTER!!!!!
I have restarted my Babette. We had our kitchen walls knocked down to make a really open plan space and the kitchen is all refitted. We have purple glass splashbacks and I decided we needed a purple velvet small sofa for the kitchen space. And every sofa needs a blankie. So I decided to start a new Babette in purpley colours. It's using Special Stylecraft DK which is ahem, totally acrylic, but lovely to crochet with and feels soft.
Other than that, not much knitty news. The ripple afghan is ongoing, and so are about 5 other project.
Lily is off to Warwick University in October, so I need to get it finished for her to take!
I am off to the South of France tomorrow and of course Babette will be coming with me.
Hopefully I will be back soon with some finished pictures!
