Mitten scarf is coming along

I've done just over 3 feet of the scarf. I anticipate another 3 feet will do what the daughter wants. This is from Red Heart acrylic and is working up quickly on size 10 needles. It contracted because of the cables and ribbing and I knew I was going to have to 'kill' the acrylic to permantly block it and soften it up. I did that this morning while it's still on the needles to make sure I will like the effect. I pinned the mitten pocket on to see how it would look. I did the pocket on size 5 needles so it would be sturdier.

I must stop playing around with my socks so I can finish this up this week.
