What We’re Learning from Our Knitting
Margaret calls for emergency help from Catherine to help her figure out a supposedly invisible repair (Knit Freedom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXD3TdbpDbM;  Kate Atherly in Knitty 2006 http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATrepairs101.html;  Rina Crochet’s book Flawless Knit Repair  19 pages of gold, I’m guessing, used  for $99 )  of her Multnomah Shawl by Shawl repair
The shawl design is Multnomah by Kate Ray.  https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/multnomah
Recommended by Chrissy the Great https://www.ravelry.com/people/chrissythegreat  formerly of the Manic Purl audio Podcast and currently (well, currently in a break from ) Snappy Stitches video podcast.  
Purl soho has picture tutorial of  duplicate stitches initials on a cap using the “A”s and not the “V”s of the knit stitch.

In today’s episode of Teaching Your Brain to Knit, we explore Universal Design for Learning to help us learn and teach from a more comprehensive approach,  we put our brains together to mend a shawl using what we’re calling the duplicate stitch/weave method, and Catherine reports how Hiller Park in McKinleyville serves many needs from dog park to eco preserve of a coastal forest.
