Brainy thing: 25:10 Redwood Curtain: 33:50
What Our Knitting is Teaching Us
Margaret concludes (at least for now) her cotton sock yarn comparison with Feel Good Yarns sock yarn knitted in a generic sock pattern and using the new-to-her Fish Lips Kiss Heel by Sox Therapist http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fish-lips-kiss-heel
in Feel Good Yarn Company http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/feel-good-yarn-company-silverspun-sock
She compares Feel Good Yarn with Cascade Fixation and Cobasi by HiKoo, which is currently her favorite.
Catherine talks about her painful learning from the Mona8pi or Bunny Muff’s Vanessa Ives Mystery shawl http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/vanessa-ives-mkal out of Woole’s Yarns Creations Color Changing Cotton

The “R” stands for the Reading/Writing preference. While many people including educators find these systems useful, other criticize the research that has been done.
