Teaching Your Brain to Knit
Brainy Thing:  17:29           Behind the Redwood Curtain:  27:00
 
What We’re Learning from Our Knitting:
Catherine rages against the bulky yarn she’s using in some mystery yarn she’s using and returns to a more comfortable yarn she used for but the Funky Baby Kimono by Melilab   http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/funky-baby-kimono  
 
 
Margaret muses about several shades of black after finishing a generic top down,   Fish Lip Kiss Heeled generic sock with Soft Like Kittens yarn from independent dyer, Annette M Russell in Auckland, New Zealand (now on indefinite hiatus)  http://www.softlikekittens.com/  
 
Brainy Thing:
Catherine takes a playful (but probably not scientific approach) to playing with color, first on Facebook and then with Pantone’s color of the year, greenery.    Check out the color and personality quiz on our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/Teachingyourbraintoknitpodcast/ and see the information about the color “greenery” from Pantone:  https://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2017
 
Behind the Redwood Curtain:
Margaret shares the story of the Little Sailboat Who Could, The Golden Rule which is a project of the Veterans for Peace to teach the world about the dangers of nuclear war and testing.

This time on the Teaching Your Brain to Knit Podcast we explore probably a not very scientific view of how personality and mood impact color and vice versa, Catherine rages against bulky yarn but gets comfort from baby yarn, Margaret muses on several shades of black, she also tells the story of the Little Sailboat Who Could, a veterans for peace project teaching about the dangers of nuclear war and testing and then there’s a tip from one of our listeners, bead weasel about beads.
