(Oct. 17) The Science of Supply and Demand
For a little more on the destruction of the natural world, the Koshland Science Museum in Northwest Washington hosts The Science of Biodiversity tomorrow evening.

Evidently, there's no yarn shortage on planet Earth. Beginning tomorrow, and continuing on almost every Wednesday through February, Arlington's Artisphere will be hosting Yarn Bomb Meet-ups and Stitch Sessions. Amateur and experienced stitchers alike are invited to help create art projects that will be used to bring a little more color and vibrancy to the Rosslyn area.
