Do you love a touch of the unknown? Then, “The Mystery of Tracking” is the episode for you!

There is a fascinating occurrence that happens in weaving called “tracking”. It isn’t something you can plan and it doesn’t always happen. But, it’s a lovely phenomenon that will make your fabric seem much more interesting and mystical! Please enjoy episode 118 all about “The Mystery of Tracking”.

Show Notes –

Yarn Tracking – You know how I love Madelyn van der Hoogt! Madelyn writes for Handwoven Magazine and a few years back, she wrote an interesting response to a weaver asking about tracking. Check it out here. 

Plain Weave – Just in case you are early on in your weaving career, let me explain the wonderful plain weave! Plain weave (sometimes referred to as “tabby”) is the simplest, most straightforward weaving pattern there is – just over, under, over, under. If you’ve created a potholder on a square red plastic or metal loom, you’ve done plain weave! Back in the early days, I created a lovely episode of A Handwoven Experience on this exact topic! Enjoy episode 14 right here.
