Using the methods in this tutorial I posted a while back I made this lovely lovely scarf!

I love it.  It's so drapey and soft.  Made from my own handspun bamboo art yarn!

Saw this on your blog and loved it! It's very visually stimulating, and looks like it would be texturally stimulating as well. Envious of your talents!

I had a loom made so I could also make a scarf. My problem... I don't know how to make the fringe. the tut I read on it was vague on that part.

I absolutely LOVED your Rider Prider scarf, and now this one! I really wanted to join in on that craftalong, but store bought yarns compared to yours are boring and made me sad every time I looked at them and tried to find one that would work well  Undecided

I made this loom and wove in fabric strips, but never finished, so took it off the other day, and the loom is still leaning on the wall. I don't understand the shuttle part. I just wove the fabric over and under. I agree with Leather and Lace that the effect wouldn't be the same with store yarn, but I realized my fabric strips were too thick. Maybe t shirt yarn would make a nice soft scarf. Your earlier tutorial is what prompted me to make it. I gotta get busy. I'm slacking.
