I agree another book discussion would be fun- and I really like Spellcoats
so I think discussing it would be a wonderful idea! I think DWJ quite
cleverly sets it up so that Tanaqui isn't deceptive- with the two coats
being woven in different places, so that when she makes the first one, she
is more ignorant than when she does the second. 

(Yes, I loved The Thief).
