Catherine is using her Fantasy Red Cardi by Katherine Foster as her carry along knitting project and has just started a crochet project: Dogwood Scarf by Suzann Thompson. Margaret has been experimenting with making samples of different ways to top off the top of a simple hat.
Catherine reports on a study done by Dr. Arne May who found that teaching people to juggle grew their brain cells. She asks, can knitting and crochet do the same thing?
Margaret talks about clams, clamming and Clam Beach, California.
Margaret suggests that people try different tools and is now experimenting with 12 inch and 9 inch knitting needles.
