The Ocean Park Scarf

Even without any real motivation, I still needed something to do with my hands night before last while I was watching President Obama at his press conference. So, I decided to pick up my knitting needles and and my handspun yarn that I finished last week called “Ocean Park”. I wanted to make a simple scarf that I could take with me down to my parents house on the peninsula. I frogged the design 4 times before I finally came up with this pattern. I love this scarf sooo much. The colors, sparkle, locks, and random sari silks, all remind me of the beach. And, it's extremely soft and squooshy. I've posted the pattern below for anyone who might want it.
