Some women ask for jewels or perfumes for their birthday. I asked for a small loom. So my parent's gift for my 40th birthday last month was a 32' Ashford Rigid Heddle loom. I didn't manage to try it before yesterday. And this is my first scarf, pure acrylic as I didn't want to spoil nice yarn for my first go. But finally it's a nice fabric, very soft. I love the variegated yarn of the warp. I think I'll get more !

 Grin Very nice! I know what you mean about the birthday thing, I never ask for the "norm", in fact I already have the next holiday request in to have him pick out fabric.....hmm wonder what he'll come up with.  Wink

Sooo beautiful, makes me want to get a loom! You've done a gorgeous job. Truly that was your first-ever weaving project, or your first project on that particular loom? It looks so professional! Thanks for sharing your good work.

The weft is anis green, my favourite color.

Yes, it's my first-ever weaving project. I did my best to make even edges. I think I'll get it soon.
