Welcome to Episode 70

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
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.

For a small town, Arcata, CA has unexpected cultural diversity in it’s business. Catherine shares information about Los Bagels, a Jewish-Mexican Bakery and how they unite the community with their dia de los muertos or dia de muertos altar.
In this episode of teaching your brain to knit, we explore why hand-eye coordination not only allows us to do all sorts of things with our hands (like knitting) but also builds our brains; Margaret shares insights gained by teaching a crochet class; Catherine turns to crochet for her dishcloth swap; Los Bagels celebrates the food and customs of two different cultures; and we have another book give-away.
