Hat and Scarf Are Finished

These items were a love and hate project to make. I loved the softness of the Homespun Yarn by Lion. The yarn is so smooth and soft but unfortunately it splits, snags, is hard to see and I'm always worried that it will unravel. I loved the colors I used but was a little shaky about the matching issue but now that the scarf and hat are finished, I think they look nice. I will be headed into colder weather for about a week and I need something to help keep me warm and this should fit the bill.

Here's the hat; the pattern is called Lovely Lady Slouch Hat.

The scarf pattern is Just Another Chevron Scarf. I used a heavier weight yarn and a smaller hook (J) to make this. The colors I used are lagoon and forest--nice rich colors.

This is it for now. Take care and stay warm everyone!
