I made this shawl for my baby's room with Caron simply soft in solid and paints.  I used a 24" Ashford Rigid Heddle loom Smiley
Here it is on the rocking chair




My selvedges were wonky at first but they looked pretty good once I got the hang of things Smiley


I just knotted a fringe, I want to hemstitch my next project to see how that looks Smiley

Thanks Smiley  It is super soft, I know it's a cheap yarn but I do love how simply soft feels Smiley
