Comments about Color and Texture in Weaving:
This book does not give the tie-up and treadling as I am use to with other books. I stayed with it determined to interpret it, but I just couldn't do it and finally gave up. Yes, I did figure out the tie-up. But the sequence for the warp color changes. Don't tell me that little key on the side (picture of a weft wrap) is all there is? Finally, gave up. This should not be that hard to figure out.
