I recently finished and Irish Hiking Scarf for my husband of Jager yarn, 85/15, acrylic/wool.  It is 65" long.  My husband would like it longer, but thankfully I ran out of yarn, LOL.  It was fun but got really tedious at the end.



Then I also just finished a little sweater for one of our granddaughters.  Here is the original pattern.  You can see that I made a number of changes.  The hood is also kitchenered, of which I am quite pleased.  Although I have done quite a bit of starting sweaters, this is the first actually finished.  It is of Lion Brand Cotton Ease in their maize color.  Our little grand has red hair, so this will be beautiful on her.

Oh, very cute. I'm making that scarf for my dad right now and it's already getting tedious - I'm probably only around 1/6 or 1/5 of the way done ;_;

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

I love the detail in the little girl's sweater...and am impressed that you kitchenered the whole hood on!

Oh, no, not the whole hood.  I picked up stitches at the neckline to make the hood and when it was the correct height, I kitchenered the top so there wouldn't be a seam running from the crown to the brim at the face.  Make sense?  I'm sorry that was confusing.
