other than the obvious (more experience), what were some of the tips and tricks that helped you speed up? Right now I can finish a frame in 30 minutes if i'm concentrating and not distracted. The only major difference between myself and what i've seen in pictures is that i only use one clamp while i weave the crosses, placed directly in the middle of the frame. I've seen some pics where both are used, one on each side. I tried to emulate this but it stretched the mains trying to get it to fit into the right position. Also, I've heard that weaving one cross ahead of the one you're pulling tension on helps to speed you up. I've tried it both ways (pulling after i weave, or going one ahead before pulling tension) and i can't tell a difference.
