It’s over three months in, and I’m still loving the NutriSystem plan! I can’t believe it, really.

Beyond the scarf

I finished the second hooded scarf.  It was identical in almost every way to my first, as the coworker requested.  I did use a smaller hook now that I’m more comfortable with a bulky textured yarn.  It turned out pretty well.
