Simple weaving; multi-color scarf

Here is my first multi-color scarf, woven on an Ashford Rigid Heddle Knitter's Loom.  The yarn is from my stash of very inexpensive stuff purchased on sale; Red Heart Heads Up yarn, 80% acrylic, 20% wool.  After putting the yarn onto the loom, the weaving went very quickly.  The finished scarf measures about 8 1/2" x 37".  After taking the woven fabric off the loom, I washed it in hot water and then put it in the dryer.  The fabric came out soft and pliable and will wear well.
