Scarf and hat

I've been working on a hand-knit scarf (finished) and hat, which is not finished. I'm using Lion Brand Moonlight mohair along with a rayon blend, an acrylic blend, and a Shetland wool. All together, five strands of yarn (the Moonlight Mohair has 2 strands.)

I used wooden #10 US needles for the scarf, cast on 12 stitches and knitted K1P1 until I ran out of the Moonlight Mohair.

For the hat, I cast on 48 stitches, again doing K1P1 but am using bamboo circular needles in a slightly smaller size. I've got 5 rows done, work is going fast.

I'm trying to empty enough room in my craft room in the basement to even get to my knitting machines. It's been building up for a long time.
