    The pictures speak for themselves in this beautiful rag rug book from Finland. The unusual variety of 4-,6-, and 8-shaft threading produces breathtaking designs. The fresh and contemporary use of color in this vast array of structures, including twill, rosepath, plain weave, rep, overshot and more, are an inspiration for the soul. There are often multiple ways given to weave one warp to maximize your setup time. An invaluable section at the back of the book includes fantastic diagrams of managing multiple shuttles, unusual cutting and splicing methods for rags, as well as several finishing options. Who knows what other gems you will learn from using Google Translate to help with the Finnish. (In Finnish.)
