What We’re Learning from Our Knitting (and Crochet):
Catherine tackles a new dog sweater for her son’s dog. Knit Dog Coat (by Bernat): https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dog-coat-11. Margaret adds beads to the sweater for her crocheted sheep by Lucy of Attic24: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/woolly-sheep-2 . She used scraps of fingering weight yarn although the pattern called for DK.

Catherine finds research that shows the location of housing can change reports of happiness level even if nothing else changes. http://science.sciencemag.org/content/337/6101/1505
