Purple Thing

I am making the Ruana from Melville's knitting book. I'm using Purple Homespun. While I think I'm making good progress, my husband was teasing me last night and said he thinks I will finish it in time for my birthday (in June).

I'm trying to be a little more optimistic. I have knitted my way through two skeins and am getting ready to start on number 3. WHen that's done, I will be halfway through.

I still have to rip out Matthew's sweater and start over. I've decided to make it in the round instead of trying to seam it. I'm also going to do one from the neck down as the kid is growing at a phenomenol rate and I want it to fit when I'm finished.
