Onto the first big stripe of the ripple bedspread now - 33.5 rows remaining! Each row does take a while though, and I'm still not supposed to be doing much crochet. Darned elbow.
I'm partway through the 6th repeat of the shawl right now. Still motoring on, though I've started having flashbacks to the black dropstitch shawl I finished in May last year. I seem to remembering whining about hating dropstitch patterns and swearing I'd never make another shawl using them. Turns out, though, that the black shawl I made so unwillingly has become one of my favourite garments. And hub's Granny is worth it.
