Irish Hooded Scarf

I do believe this project is progressing nicely. I hope to have it done by Christmas. Need it for a present. And thanks Jim for kick starting the hood part for me.

Irish Hooded scarf HELP!

Okay so i am making a hooded scarf for my "old lady" for Christmas, but I have ran into a pattern snag.
I need help reading this pattern so that I know what to do next. The scarf is easy, the hood I am having a problem with. I will type out the instructions and maybe someone can tell me what I am not getting here.

I already cast on my 80 stitches. I completed the following two rows:

My next Christmas present

As I am retired and on a meager fixed retirement income I am forced to make my presents this year(I like that though). I am now making a Irish hooded scarf with pockets for my wife. Color is a Denim Heather.

First Afghan

Well this is my first Afghan. I made it for a Christmas present this year. Just finishing up the fringe on it.

Holdoff project

I am using this afghan as a "holdoff" project hoping that by the time I am finished with it I will have worked up the courage to try to knit myself a sweater. A cabled fisherman type would be very cool.

Rehab project

As my hand heals from a surgery to correct the pain I was experiencing since February of this year, I decided to knit this scarf. I did this when it became bearable enough to pick up the needles again. Still a little pain but getting better every day. I did this also because I knew I would be laid up after having foot/toe surgery to relieve that irritating pain whenever I walk and run.

Easy sweater

Okay fellas, I am mending from hand surgery that will hopefully allow me to knit without pain. So when I can get knitting again I am looking for easy sweater patterns. That way I can learn to do sweaters. I love sweaters and would like to start making some for myself. All while I am recuperating from surgery on my right big toe.

Ipad 2

My roommate just bought an IPad 2 (pretty cool device), I was thinking of knitting a personal cover/sleeve for her. Any ideas where I may find a pattern to work from?

Spring?

Just when I think spring is coming to Connecticut I am fooled. One day it almost reaches 60 degrees and the next we have a noreaster in March.
