This rustic Christmas tree looks nice both inside and outside the house on a wintry day. I wove it on the Glimakra Emilia loom using mostly cotton carpet warp. I used an inlay technique to create the tree. If I feel inspired, I may weave a few decorations, but I think I like it best as is.
This is another plain weave scarf on the Ashford Sampleit rigid heddle loom. The warp is Lion Brand Amazing, which is 50% wool / 50% acrylic. It’s pretty, but it’s sticky. I bought three skeins thinking I’d make three scarves, but I may use it as a weft the next time around.
The Ashford Company has put out a video on warping and weaving a scarf on the little Sampleit Rigid Heddle loom:

Makes me want to weave another scarf!
Here’s a useful, soft, and warm scarf woven out of a single ply wool called Manos Maxima. I wove it very quickly on my Ashford Sampleit over the weekend. The Sampleit has proven its worth as a portable loom as I brought it to work on Friday. Several of my coworkers knit or crochet, and now I can weave. The loom tucks into a medium-sized duffle, and I actually warped it and wove a few inches. Over the cold weekend, I finished the scarf while under a blanket on the couch. My other looms are getting jealous.
