Scarf and Hat Set

I finally finished this scarf and hat for a friend who is working in London. I finished it in time for ... spring?! Sigh, never mind, maybe she'll still be working in London when winter comes round again.

This scarf is the same as another one I had knit earlier for another friend. I tried blocking the ribbing wider so that the ends won't seem to fan out so much, but it didn't work. When the scarf dried and I unpinned it from blocking, the ribbing sprang right back. I hope my friend won't mind.

The hat is from a Japanese magazine. I used yarn of a smaller gauge but thankfully, after blocking, it turned out alright.

I managed to take some self photos to show you how the hat looks like when worn, but somehow the colour turned out much lighter than it actually is.

By the way, can you see my specs? I graduated to progressive lenses :)
