Brainy Thing: 20:35 Behind the Redwood Curtain 32:40
What We’re Learning from Our Knitting
Margaret was inspired by Catherine to try Sasha Ball Rives wonderful pattern Among the Wildflowers http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/among-the-wildflowers with her own “learning opportunities”, of course.
For a Ravelry swap, Catherine completed the Crochet Flower Potholders pattern by Jennifer Martin Blue J http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flower-potholders using scraps of cotton.

For ways to counter that bias, try Marelisa Fabrega http://daringtolivefully.com/overcoming-negativity-bias.
Behind the Redwood Curtain:
Catherine tells us about the historical Phillips house in Arcata built in 1853/4 in the Greek Revival style which is open Sundays 2 to 4 http://www.arcatahistory.org/phillips_house_museum_arcata .
One of our Ravelry Members, puffygriffinclaw, offers some tips on Felting.
