Peglooms and Weaving Sticks
I remembered seeing a website with someone making a rag rug using
something called a peg loom. I thought it was like a knitting loom.
It turns out the peg loom is actually weaving, not knitting.
Finger Weaving is more like a knitting loom.

Here's what I found after the last couple of days of searching.
(search for "peg loom" "pegloom")
There are two kinds of peg looms. Most people are familiar with looms
that have pegs or pins to put your warp on. Like the little weavette looms,
or pot holder looms, or the student type frame looms with pegs.
The other kind of pegloom has movable pegs. You weave the warp around
pegs set on a frame, the lift the peg to slide the work down the warp.
This is a larger version of the even simpler Weaving Stick method.
