I have been trying soumak weaving the past couple of days, but I’m a bit
confused by the instructions I’ve seen. The first article I have is in the
Winter 99′ Spin-Off. It appears to be just wrapping the weft around the
warp ends. I was looking at a website on soumak for beginners, created by
the same person who wrote the article, and the instructions appear to be
completely different, a series of knots around each warp end. To confuse
things further, the pictures that go along with the text on the web site
don’t look like they are doing the same thing, or am I just missing
something.

I loose it at instruction number 4, which begins “hold the yarn with your
left hand”.
