There's weaving going on...

There's weaving going on at the Casita!  To make this scarf, I used a skein of wool yarn for the warp (vertical strands) and a skein of silk sari yarn for the weft (horizontal strands).  The fabric is being woven on an Ashford Rigid Heddle Knitter's Loom.  Mine is a small, convenient loom, but it still provides the simple pleasure of weaving.  I'd have to say, hands down, including all of the various crafts that I dabble in, weaving is by far my favorite.  This scarf is all done; it took two days to complete.
