This episode of Teaching Your Brain to Knit reveals a surprising discovery of why we can’t talk across the political divide (but don’t worry we’re not going to talk about politics itself. It’s about the brain, of course and how to counter its sometimes bad habits ) Catherine recounts the finale to Bunnymuff’s Absolutely Essential Shawl; Margaret presents Fibernymph’s Inversible Yarn in an afterthought heel sock; Catherine introduces the stately Roosevelt Elk; and Margaret gives away a copy of Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

What We’re Learning from Our Knitting
Nothing could be easier than Kirsten Hipsky’s #576 Knit Lace Jar Cover http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knit-lace-jar-covers so of course Margaret had to complicate it by learning a new technique: this time a garter stitch kitchener which turned out less complicated than the standard stockinette kitchener.
