Peg Loom scarf

I bought a peg loom a couple of years ago, and quickly got started making the fabric for a bag.  However, I wasn't happy with it and the loom got put away with the bag unfinished.  Yesterday I saw a lovely scarf in town, but couldn't find it in the shop (it was the last one it turned out, and they didn't have the label for it) 

I popped across the road and bought some lovely wool, came home and got the loom out, luckily I had enough unused pegs on it to be able to get started straight away, and in little more than an hour I had most of the scarf done.  I stopped only when I ran out of wool.  I have dashed into town today and bought more wool to finish this one and maybe make another, but here it is at the moment.  Sorry for the blurry photo!

November Calendar Journal

I was a little late getting my pages done for November, as it took me most of the month to decide how to do them.  My son suggested rockets as it is Bonfire night on the 5th, and I figured he was right - a simple rocket shape would make a good journaling spot.  Due to lack of time I didn't do anything fancy, they don't particularly look like rockets to me but the trail of stickle stars shooting out of them as they whoosh into the sky helps!

I did realise afterwards that the colour scheme is very similar to my October pages, I must make an effort to make December look different!
