Efficient use of ski shuttle?
Is there a trick to using a ski shuttle efficiently? I seem to either have long loops of yarn hanging off it (which get caught everywhere), or get stuck for lack of yarn in the middle of the shed - and I haven't decided yet what's more annoying. Of course my shuttle is not exactly the length of weft needed for one pick... And I'm currently weaving with two shuttles, which aggravates the problem.
Or is the solution to not use a ski shutlle unless one absolutely has to but use a boat shuttle even if one can weave only a few cm between bobbin changes? (The weave is a weft-faced tote bag, so the ends are easy to hide).
I'd appreciate advice from the pros! Thanks! Klara
