I finally finished the hooded scarf I was knitting for my mom. It really didn't take that long once I sat down and just did it. I used the Japanese short row method and that seemed to work pretty well. One side of the decreases looks much better than the other side. They definitely don't look the same. I'm not sure what happened there, but it isn't a big deal. Overall I'm happy with it. The scarf is really long (but not nearly as long as the pattern says to make it) so my mom can wrap it around herself a couple of times. I hope she likes it and I hope it keeps her warm.
I took this photo of myself modelling the scarf because I figured Ross would protest if I tried to put it on him. I'm not sure what I will knit next. I think Ross needs a hat...especially since he has started riding his bike to work. Whatever I start, I just need to keep up with it and not let it drag on for a year.
