First Cut Length Shawl - Weaving has begun!

Cut Length ShawlHere's a photo of the cut length shawl I'm currently weaving on my 7 foot loom. You can see some of the cut lengths of yarn waiting for me to weave them hanging on the left of the loom. Progress is slow on this as I don't have a lot of free time for my weaving. But I always make sure to weave at least one strand through each day. Shortrow, if you're reading this, you may recognize the blue yarn.

When this one is done, I'll put the experimental shawl back on the loom and see if I can get that one fixed up.

How far have you come along on it?

Love this technique since I loathe spending the time it takes to add fringe to tri-loom projects--longer than the actual weaving in my experience. This solves that problem very neatly. Are the fringes loose or are you tying each end onto the nails? Can't tell from the pics.

Hi temptressyarn,
The fringes are actually created as a part of weaving each strand through. You don't attatch it at all - it just forms as you weave. Keep watching, I'll post instructions on the cut length method soon and you'll see what I mean.

Very Interesting! I'm used to single strand weaving. Your approach is very unique.

I did not know that could be done by hand. It looks so much prettier than what you would get in the store. I want to to say I wish I could do that but it looks like so much work.

Hi Tamara. The hardest part is nailing in all those nails if you choose to make your own loom. It's really easy to do all the weaving and fun too.
