Asking me the same question twice, and I cant see why?

Im following along with a video on workspaces, I thought i had followed along as shown, but when I run it, it asks me for the list name. then shows my answer in a hash, then asks for an item name and then a quantity.

this is where it goes wrong, it should show me a hash of something like {"name" => "groceries", "items" =>["milk", "quantity" => 1"]}

like it does on the video, but my code asks for the item and then the quantity again and then shows a hash with only the item milk and the quantity 1?

I don't mind that it is wrong, but i cant see where Ive gone wrong. its probably something minor (like most of my errors in ruby!!) any help would be appreciated.

def create_list print "What is the name of the list? " name = gets.chomp

hash = { "name" => name, "items" => Array.new} return hash end

def add_list_item print "what is the item called? " item_name = gets.chomp

print "How much? " quantity = gets.chomp.to_i

hash = {"name" => item_name, "quantity" => quantity} return hash end

list = create_list() puts list.inspect list['items'].push(add_list_item())

puts add_list_item().inspect
