the never-ending purple monstrosity

there is no way the poncho-turned-wrap will be ready to block by friday. when we left knit night last week i thought 3 more pattern repeats would do it. i finished 2nd of them yesterday and now i think i'm atleast 3 (if not 4) more repeats from done. so i think i'll do gauge swatches for the sweater tomorrow night and just be resigned to the fact that the purple thing won't be ready to block till my last knit night. i wish it was otherwise, but it's nice to have a little bit of the self-imposed pressure off. it should be easy to finish on the plane to oregon next week. and i think i finally know what (or whom) it's for. my mother-in-law's birthday is august 19th. we can drop it off with her the 2nd week of august when we're driving through on our way to portland. it almost feels like it was meant to be or something. tonight's knitting time was severely hampered by harry potter. i didn't start the book till last night and i finished it about an hour and a half ago. it was by far the best book of the series so far in my opinion. i may soon break down and knit something exceptionally cheesy like a gryffindor scarf. actually, that's not very likely, but i did enjoy the book quite a lot.
