Baby Hat and Scarf

I just finished knitting a hat and scarf for my nephew, Alex. The scarf is probably way too big for his little baby neck but I was so worried that it would be too small that I may have over-compensated a little. The hat is totally adorable and I can't wait until I have some free time to knit myself one. It's made from Bernat Satin with two strands of yarn held together. It came out very lush and thick and I'm sure it will keep his head nice and toasty all winter.

The scarf was knit in stockinette so it was curling like mad! I crocheted a border all around but it was still curling some so I'm hoping that a little blocking will straighten out some.
