What We’re Learning from our Knitting:
Margaret explores the planning/creative phase of a project with Lea Redman's Knit the Sky Scarf http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sky-scarf. Redman also has a book called Knit the Sky that promotes creativity and playfulness in knitting. http://www.knitthesky.com/ book Margaret heard of Lea Redman through Becky Steward's Knit Om newsletter. http://knitom.com/author/becky-stewart/
Catherine declares that she is fine being a slow knitter (and later in the episode that she is also fine being a slow reader.) She is continuing her progress on charity socks https://northcoastknittery.com/blogs/shop-tidbits/socks-for-the-homeless sponsored by Northcoast Knittery and on Bunnymuff’s Fatima Shawl.
