Ep. 079 Replication Crisis; Learning to Love Luxury; Crochet Scrubbies; Eureka Inn Renaissance

Welcome to Episode 79

Brainy Thing:  12:50      Behind the Redwood Curtain:   22:40

What We’re Learning from our Knitting:

Margaret learns to love Luxury with Lhasa yarn:   50% yak, 50% cashmere.  She used the Lhasa  Snuggle Mitts pattern by Laura Lamers.
Catherine found a crochet pattern for her annual scrubbies exchange : the  zinnia dishcloth  pattern from  Lily/Sugar’n Cream.

Brainy Thing:

If you can’t reproduce the results of a scientific experiment, can you rely on it?  Margaret talks about the Replication Crisis in Science.

Behind the Redwood Curtain:

Catherine explores a landmark and historic hotel, the Eureka In —where else— Eureka.
