Ep. 070 Hand-eye coordination Builds Brains; Teaching Crochet; Crocheting Dishcloths; Los Bagels; and Giveaway
Brainy Thing: 18:02 Redwood Curtain 31:02
What We’re Learning from Our Knitting:
Margaret learns a lot about teaching and learning by teaching a beginner crochet to a group using the pattern of Simple Single Crochet Hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simple-single-crochet-hat
by K T and the Squid ( Katy Petersen.) She and the class used Valley Yarns aran (discontinued).
Catherine also was into crochet this time for her dishcloth swap group. She learned some new techniques with the Partly Sunny pattern (99 cents) by Stacey L W Lee Partly sunny toots and momo designs
We hear the phrase Hand-eye coordination but why is that so important to us and our brains. Margaret explores the topic.
