Teaching Your Brain to Knit
Ep. 024  Muscle Memory and Knitting

Brainy Thing:  17:17   Behind the Redwood Curtain:  27:10

Margaret took a course in Multi-Directional Knitting from JC Briar and has made wristlets to reinforce that learning.   She also made the Mudra Cuff by Laura Nelkin.

Catherine is blocking her second Fantasy Red Cardi by Katherine Foster.   She can't travel with her other projects.

Catherine describes the iconic (and contemporary)  Humboldt Honey who still walk the streets of Arcata, California.  

Margaret offers a knitting tip that by making small projects ( like a wrister, coffee cozy, or coaster) after learning a new technique, you can improve your muscle memory and anchor the learning.
