Thanks everyone! I actually started the ribbed scarf, but got REALLY bored and didn't finish. Or even come near finishing LOL. So I figured, I've mastered knit and purl, why not just try the hat? I've crocheted most of my life, and I know that if I don't really want to work on the project I'll never finish it.
I just cast on for a sweater a couple of days ago. Hopefully I'll have a second FO to show you all in the near future!
