Welcome to Episode 76:
What We Learned from Our Knitting
Catherine finishes a lace shawl (with beads, of course) called Ocean Kelp and designed by Harry Wells whose Rav name is knitting ninja and his design studio is Good for a Boy Designs. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ocean-kelp Catherine got more practice with charts, not her favorite way to follow a pattern. Here are before and after blocking photos.
Margaret knits a family of Creature Mittens from Morehouse Farms kits for her family and learns a bit about Mitten thumbs from Anna Zilboorg in Magnificent Mittens and Socks .
She also corrects the mistake she made between Churchmouse Yarns on Bainbridge Island, Washington and Morehouse Farms that raises Merino Sheep in Upstate New York.

Thank you for encouraging people to get involved in their local and federal communities. I’ve just began getting more active in my area’s environmental issues. Here at the DE beach we voted against oil investigation and drilling 2 years ago, now this issue has come to light again in the form of a proposal. Your podcast was extremely timely for all of us to get involved.
