Brainy thing: 20:25 Behind the Redwood Curtain: 32:27
What We’re Learning from Our Knitting:
Margaret is exploring new approaches to knitted birds with Nicky Filakowska’s aptly named book Knitted Birds . These birds are knitted in pieces and then assembled and stuffed.
Catherine is realizing the importance of gauge with a seemingly simple dishcloth pattern — the Quadrant dishcloth/washcloth by Jenny Konopinski
Brainy Thing: The Matilda Effect
Women not only were prohibited from getting advanced education and entering fields like science and medicine; but also when they did, their work was often overlooked. Catherine introduces the phenomenon named after Matilda Joslyn Gage this week
