Hat and Stashbusting Scarf

I thought I would want a new hat by the end of the winter and so brought two balls of Jamieson with me to make this little guy.96 stitches on 7 needles using a five point decrease worked every round start 3/4 of the way up the pattern.I've also been working on my scarf for the season. It's a whimsical entrelac scarf on 8's using 4 balls of Silky wool that have piled up during my Latvian mitten making adventures. I'm almost half done with it.
