start a magic scarf...finally AND IS FINISHED!

I have finally started a magic scarf. I decided to try it on the green long loom instead of the yellow round loom. The yellow is a nice golden that I got in a yarn exchange and then got the black at Michael's. I thought with this golden color it would look pretty done up as a Pittsburgh Steelers scarf even though they are not my fave team...but I do come from the area of Troy Polamalu so maybe I am doing it in his tribute :-) When I get done with the black I have another Yellow to go.

Here is part two of adding the black but looks like it is going to take 4 skeins instead of 3. I am really liking how it is turning out and is SOOOO soft. I was just going to make this up since I had the yellow but the further along I get, the more I love it. But not sure if I want to have a long black in the middle or stay with the yellow -black but then the ends would be different colors. I have to go to town to get more black so I have a few days to decide.

Here is the third instalment of my magic scarf. As you can see I went with a 2 row separation but wish I would have done a 4 row but with this being all the yellow I had I didn't think I could squeeze out any more without noticing. I do LOVE how it is coming along though.

OK, I got it done and here it is in the FAT version (before washing). I didn't get the colors exactly the same length which means I didn't count the rows :-) I just used all the yellow and then went to the black but then I made the small yellow patch and so that used some up.

Here it is after i washed it and in it's skinny form.
I promise to count my rows on the next one. I also will be using a smaller loom. I really life the way it stitched and the feel of the new long loom.

WOW I really like your crafty projects. I was thinking about making my mom a magic scarf and because my sister is busy making a hat on my yellow loom i was googleing to see if it worked out on the green long loom. Thanks to you i now know it can be done. I might borrow your christmas light bulb decoration too. They are so cute. And since i just switched over to all energy saving bulbs i have all the old ones in a box in the storage room technically they still work but aren't going to be used anymore. I was thinking about making one that looks kind of babyish because my cousins is due right before christmas. Anyways love your projects keep up the great work :D

I am interested in the machine.
Where can I get such a device. I want to do for myself this scarf.
