Two of my main Christmas presents are done. An Afghan for my mother in law and an Irish hooded scarf for my wife. Both very fun to do.

This is one lucky Mother in law to have a son in law that will put in that much effort for her gift The cables are wonderful on the scarf. I've never seen a hooded scarf before. Did you make as one pc. or sew on the hood?

Hood sewn on. Pattern from "Nikki in Stiches.com"

Great looking afghan and scarf. Good job. I hope these gifts are appreciated. Happy holidays to you.

Beautiful work! The afghan looks like it is light enough in weight to be very comfortable, but enough area to trap warm air to be cozy. That's a nice mix. Where did you get the pattern and what yarn did you use? Weight?

Projects look great! (even if I did read the post as "an afghan and an Irish Wolfhound")

Looks great. I definitely want to try that hooded scarf idea.
