Dear folks -

In starting this thread, I notice this morning, I've made an error in language that I was specifically trying to avoid. I think I got it right the first time but later I said:

"...two wefts between sheds..."

I don't want Marla to think that she has written her book to no purpose whatever and so need to acknowledge that I intended to say "two wefts between rows of knots." I think each of the two wefts in this rug (although I have not seen it that closely) lies in its own shed.
