Brainy Thing: 22:00 Behind the Redwood Curtain: 38:45
What we learned from our knitting:
Margaret played with crocheted hearts from DIY Wedding by Jennifer E. Ryan either in Interweave Crochet Summer 2015 or as a special collection on the Interweave Website. They were cute, quick and fun. They are called Guest Lapel Pins on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/guest-lapel-pins
Catherine shares Towashis she received from her swap. One was made of a worsted cotton, the second from sugar and cream and the third was sugar and cream with a portion from the specialized yarn, Sugar and Cream Scrubby which is more specialized
Catherine continues to knit baby socks for Afghans for Afghans. She modified the Kate Atherly Baby Sock http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-socks-23 to have ribbing on the top of the foot.
Brainy Thing: New Research Finds Way to Speed up Muscle Memory Learning

Margaret talks about the “scientific” and the oral history of the native tribes still thriving in the Humboldt Bay area. Much of her research is based on Two Peoples, One Place by Ray Raphael and Freeman House. http://www.amazon.com/Peoples-Place-Freeman-House-Raphael/dp/1883254019.
