This is my latest make, it was intended for a Christmas present about 3 years ago but has been delayed by the arrival of a new kitten, now 3 years old  :loveit:

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Very neat and so even - well done.  So what is next to be created on this loom?

Thank you, next is another practise piece using up left over natural yarns but next proper project will either be a cowl all made in one or kitchen towels, depends on how the practise goes.

Really nice job! I need to finish a bag project that's been on my Navajo loom for way too long, then warp the loom for a saddle blanket. I'm also setting up to make saddle cinches for my son.
It's just fabric. We can out-think it.

Beautiful scarf.  A touch of red goes so well with blacks and grays.

I don't know how I missed this thread back in July @Celia   That's a lovely scarf.
I have some loom questions so I will start a loom thread later.
Life's too short for ironing.

Everyone needs a loom. Then you need to actually use the loom but that's a separate thing.

Brilliant I would love some company, I am no expert but am willing to answer anything I can.
