What We’re Learning from our Knitting
Margaret took a class from JC Briar on Multi-Directional Knitting and made these two wristers. (Although she couldn’t find a pattern by JC on Ravelry) She really enjoyed this technique and plans to do more. Inspired by the Beaded Waves Scarf, Margaret also made the Mudra Cuff by Laura Nelkin.
Catherine continues to work on her second Fantasy Red Cardi by Kathryn Foster using a skein of Goth Socks from Rainy Day and Wooly Dogs yarn company. She can’t carry along with her either Meadowlark Shibori Jacket by Gina Wilde or Among the Wildflowers by Sasha Ball Rives.
Brainy thing: Muscle Memory and Knitting
Margaret talks about Muscle and how we can apply the ideas worked up by coaches of athletes and musicians to Knitting. Take a look at these.
Behind the Redwood Curtain
Catherine describes an iconic figure of the Northcoast: The Humboldt Honey The poster, immortalizing the Humboldt Honey was designed by Ingrid Hart (Ingrid DaSilva at the time) who was a journalism major at Humboldt State University. You can Link to article and image. You can still buy the poster at Picky Picky Picky in Eureka, CA.
Margaret suggests that to help anchor your knitting and build muscle memory of the new technique you can make small projects: wristlets, coaster or coffee mug cozy might be some possibilities. Then you would have reinforced your learning and have something to show for it!
