Slower by the hour
- faster by the week?
I often do "runs" of shawls - 5 to 10 on the same warp.
I used to weave all of them, cut off, cut apart, look at the heap of un-fringed shawls and sigh.
Then I dared to warp several message shawls on one warp. Due to the fact that they are double, with the layers offset, they have to be cut off after each one is woven. And I found that it was a lot less... difficult to make fringes on one shawl at a time. I do them in the evenings, while watching TV or just socializing. This means that when I cut iff the last of the (say) 10 shawls, there is only one left to make fringes on, before the whole load can go into the washing machine.
So I started to do the same on every shawl warp. While it may take a bit longer to re-tie every time, the fringes are done before have woven the last on the warp. I think it is faster "by the week"...
