What We’re Learning from Our Knitting:
Catherine is surprised when she learns (again) that colors online don’t always match colors in yarn when she buys a Lion Brand Yarn pattern Coffee Shop Wrap kit by Alexandra Tavel https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/coffee-shop-wrap only to discover that a color that she thought was a mild creaming yellow turned out to be a zangy mustard.
Margaret patched two more socks, including removing and replacing an afterthought heel and it turned out beautifully, just like it was planned to be. One sock was out Austermann Step yarn in a Blueberry Waffle pattern https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blueberry-waffle-socks and the other was out of
Fish Knits Yarn warm heart She also added to her crocheted bathroom accessories collection using adventuresome techniques from Crocheter’s Skill Building Workshop by Dora Ohrenstein. The pattern is two color diamond stitch from the book.
She compares this book to two others :
Ultimate Crochet Bible: A Complete Reference with Step-by-Step Techniques https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Crochet-Bible-Step-Step/dp/1910231797/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1517428360&sr=1-2&keywords=crochet+bible by Jane Crowfoot and Crochet 101: Master Basic Skills and Techniques Easily https://www.amazon.com/Crochet-101-Step-Step-Instruction/dp/1589236394/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1517428471&sr=1-1&keywords=crochet+101 by Deborah Burger.
Not exactly brainy but thinking along the line of how colors impact our lives, Catherine talks about the Pantone color of the Year for 2018 which is ultra violet. Associated with mysticism and vision, expect to see the color around for awhile.

In this episode of Teaching Your Brain to Knit we ask will the Pantone Color of the Year lead us to a higher spiritual level?, Also Catherine is surprised by a color she receives in a shawl knitting kit; Margaret offer guides for choosing books that have the best pace for you, and the North Coast celebrates Dungenes crab season.

Ep 78:Was the documentary about the global fast fashion industry The True Cost? I think an interesting brainy segment would explore why some people are drawn to slow movements such as slow food, slow cloth, etc while others aren’t.
Interesting idea. One podcaster who documents her “slow” movement is Sara at Yarns at Yinhoo. http://www.yarnsatyinhoo.com/about/ You might enjoy her.
