5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By C. Vanderbilt on September 19, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is a good book. She goes over basic inkle weaving and moves on to pick-ups. She includes charts for basic pick-up patterns. When used in combination with Lavinia Bradley's book or Helene Bress, it is a very good resource.
Cons: It doesn't use the modern inkle looms that are in use now. But she does show how to make the simple type of inkle loom she uses in the book. Also, her charting method is different than that used in Helene Bress's book (and other more modern ones). It just takes a bit of getting used to.
Overall, it's a good book if you're interested in pick-ups but I feel that it's best when used with another book.
