FO: 1st Cricket Loom Scarf

Wham bam thank you 'mam! This project took under 24 hours! I assembled the loom yesterday and then worked most of it until late last evening, and finished the last inches this morning before the inevitable toddler chaos truly started.
Read pt.1 here.

I don't know what's better than instant gratification. Maybe instant gratification from an object that is as thin as fingering weight?

 The blue colorway has an ocean wave effect from being woven around white yarn. You could almost get lost at sea!
YARN:
1/2 a skein or less of Mackintosh Yarns' Skye sock yarn in fingering weight (colorway: Gun Powder)
Some scrap white yarn from Bernat Satin Solids in white

WARPS (the vertical threads that run the length of the scarf):
28 warps
Don't mind the PJ shots! It's Christmas Eve morning! We stay comfy around here.
 The scarf is 44 inches long. Perfect for a toddler that's 3 or 4. Heck, maybe up to 5 years old.
I'm not quite sure who is going to like the blue one more, but there will be a green sibling that is even more artful than it's brother.

That's right. Another one is already halfway done on the loom! Want a teaser?
