Loom Knit Scarf

After trying several knit scarf patterns with this yarn I finally settled on using my loom to knit it.  I think it really shows off the colorway of the yarn which was getting lost in the hand knit patterns I tried. The scarf is finished I just need to take a picture. I have another skein of the yarn and think I will use it to knit myself a slouchy hat.
I put some new things up at my Etsy shop today. What do you think? There are some holiday candle coasters and a set of wine bottle toppers.
