Finished Fringe

And here is how the fringe looks after wet finishing and trimming.
One box of yarn and half a dozen silk gimp shawls boxed up, ready to go to the post office.  Crossing things off my to-be-done list, one at a time.

Beautiful! I'm glad some of those things are getting crossed off your list. It's a pain to do all that finish work, but the final result is worth it! And that feeling of accomplishment-priceless, as they say.

I'm very jealous of your fringes!

In the past, I have either twisted fringes completely by hand or else used an electric twister (one of the purple conair ones). But inevitably, some of the fringes partially untwist (so that the first inch or two after the last weft pick is untwisted), or some of the strands loosen compared to the others. I've still not figured out what I'm doing wrong.
