reinventing the wheel

FINALLY figured out the S&W pickup and there is an asymmetrical kitty-cat tail on the warp!  Going to do the taqueté example tomorrow.  I checked Nancy Hoskins' book and she doesn't even touch on this trick, so, glad we have Lillian!  Anyway, did some sampling for my key book motif.  I think I will eventually weave that on 16 shafts, tho, in the interest of speed, but, it's nice to know that I can show somebody how it's done if they only have 8.   I love to share what I know and get other people into the joy of turning a bunch of pieces of thread into a beautiful and/or useful piece of fabric!
here it is "reflected"
