The finished size is 5 1/4" x 54". It's heading to Knit Your Bit for a veteran. Working in back loop only gives it a nice bit of stretch. I was pleased with the finished product.
The hat is adult size. Finished size is 5" x 65". It's part of the Crafting for a Cause effort and will be going to Native Americans in Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
Both of the above scarves were very easy on the mind and fingers. I have a number of patterns that I'm itching to try though so I'll be finding something a little more challenging for my next project I think.

These are the last saltines and yo-yos I made, but I do still have some small balls left so I will probably make more when I'm finished the scarf I'm presently working on.
I did finish another scarf - a double strand - to use up the leftover Wool Ease yarn I had. I had quite a bit of cream color but I knew that would not be a good color for the homeless so I decided to join it with the other leftover colors of which I didn't have as much. This is what I came up with. It is 7" x 58". I'd really like it to be longer but I ran out of the cream and have only a small ball of the green left. It's not my best looking scarf color-wise, but it is warm.
That's about it for now. Have to make a post office run today. I like to send things out soon as I can.
