This is actually my second go at weaving. My first is a bookmark that I haven't finished yet. I originally intended this to be a very long scarf, but then decided I wanted it to be a belt. But once I finished it and tried it on, I didn't like the way it looked, so I went back to the scarf idea (although a shorter one).

So this is what I wound up with. It's very basic and probably boring, but I love it to pieces. Because I made it  Cheesy

I made it on a loom my husband put together using a long plank with screws screwed into the top and bottom. I am now hopelessly in love with weaving.
