FO: Now complete, Cubs hat and scarf
First foray into duplicate stitch and ugh, I am never, ever doing duplicate stitch again! At least not letters. I know now why I quit doing cross-stitch. On top of that, I had to take out one of the letters a bazillion times to get it right and of course that will stretch out the hat stitches. It is for my grown son's birthday next month so I hope he likes it. Looks like the CUBS are a good bet to win their division so maybe it will get cold enough in Indiana for him to wear. I may send it to him early so he can wear it while the CUBS are still playing.

Oh nonny, that is so awesome!!! Seriously, I have a friend who would go insane for that set! Now, don't you tell her, because she'll be expecting me to knit it for her

Great job!
