Brainy Thing: 15:59 Behind the Redwood Curtain: 23:56
What We Learned from Our Knitting:
Margaret finished Laura’s Lamers' Silken Straw Kerchief (unpublished) which was a long term but pleasant pattern. The yarn is challenging but so worth the extra attention it needs. The pattern includes beads and silk — what more could you want?
Catherine finished her Age of Brass and Steam shawlette by Orange Flower http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-age-of-brass-and-steam-kerchiefwith a self striping skein from Canon dye works.
Margaret reports on “Neurosociety," the immersion/interactive theatre experience currently in Menlo Park, California that explores how our brains influence our perceptions and how our perceptions impact what we believe. It was created by David Byrne and Mala Gaonkar. http://www.pacegallery.com/exhibitions/12834/the-institute-presents-neurosociety and runs through March.
Behind the Redwood Curtain:
Catherine talks about how Arcata’s Big Scoop ice cream shop is an excellent example of a locavore business and one that reflects the owners’ values.
Margaret got feedback from listeners about more information on Color Dominance. Here is some particularly helpful information she found:
Ysolda Teague’s blog http://blog.ysolda.com/ysolda-blog/2014/5/29/technique-thursday-colour-dominance
Dianna at the Paper Tiger blog http://paper-tiger.net/blog/13911317/colordominance
