POA Gryffindor Scarf and Hatmione

Here's the long-awaited (or maybe I'm over-estimating my popularity) picture of the scarf and hat. Blocking it really made a wonderful difference, the stitches settled in and now it lies flat instead of bulging out into a tube. Of course, as I noted below, now I know that the damned scarf is 1x1 rib instead of a tube, but oh well. Mine is double-thick and warm.

You can also see the hat, but it's a little small since I cut the ribbing in half, so I'm going to add ribbing again to the bottom.
