In Progress - scarf and sock

Here is a picture of a scarf I started with some pretty cashmere yarn. It is using the fishtail lace pattern. I want to make this for a Christmas gift for my mum who has wanted me to knit her a scarf. I think she wants some sort of novelty yarn scarf and I've bought a few to try but I guess I'm just not a novelty scarf knitting type because I just can't figure out how to make it look good. I can't see her wearing some of the eyelash stuff that will turn out looking like some kind of feather boa or anything!

Here is my progress to date on my Jaywalker sock. I didn't work on it too much over the Thanksgiving holiday. It is very tight to pull over my foot, but once on around the ankle it does fit. I don't like that I have to pull so hard to get it on. It feels like I'm really stressing the stitches to pull so hard. I'm going to finish the sock and see what happens. I still really like the pattern and the yarn.
