What We’re Learning From Our Knitting

Margaret isn’t ready for the challenges of The Forzo Cuff by Laura Nelkin  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/forzo-cuff.  She will give away her slightly used kit to someone who is.   Just post on the Ravelry thread — first come, first served.   It is knitted lace.  Find the difference between that and lace knitting:    http://theknittingbuzz.typepad.com/the-knitting-buzz/2011/03/knitted-lace-vs-lace-knitting.html.  
Catherine  continues her long trek with  Absolutely Essential Scarf by Bunny Muff   http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/absolutely-essential;  now becoming bored with a stitch that was frustrating her awhile ago.  She is also starting socks for a local charity campaign organized by The North Coast Knittery using Kramer Yarn https://northcoastknittery.com/.  

Brainy Thing

From the book How Learning Works  by Susan Ambrose et al. comes an outline of
William G. Perry’s theory of stages of Intellectual Development later modified by Marcia Baxter-Magolda.     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_G._Perry
His ideas don’t judge what you believe but how those beliefs are formed and held.

Behind the Redwood Curtain

Rock slides are a fact of life in this area, particularly during a very rainy season.   Margaret talks about recent slides.   video   http://sfist.com/2017/04/26/video_watch_a_landslide_spill_down.php
