Over the Scarf

While my floor loom is broken I made a scarf on a frame loom with lumpy bumpy handspun yarn. It wove up faster than I thought it would. I warped the frame in a continuous loop of yarn that way when I wove I just pulled the fabric down so my arms could stay in the same spot. This would have worked better if I made a frame look with dowel and a tensioning device but I just used an old canvas stretcher frame with notched in it. The only thing that I had to do was even out my warp after I pulled it around the edge of the frame. It evened out after wet finishing. This scarf now lives at my friends ( house. I made it for her birthday. ^^ Any way on to the pictures
It has Knit and Crochet elements too

the yarn was spun from a rainbow merino top that I bought at the MA woolfest while on vacation
