Cast On

LeisureSociety & CultureCraftsPersonal Journals

Cast On began on Monday, 31 October, 2005, founded on nothing more than the desire to talk about knitting to people who get it. All the other stuff, about how memories, thoughts, hopes and dreams are knit into the fabric we create, and so become part of the fabric of our lives; about how life and knitting intertwine, and how sometimes you simply cannot tell where one part leaves off the other begins; about how the only thing wrong with the world today is that there is not enough knitting in it, all that came later, over time. Since 2005 the podcast has evolved to focus on finding inspiration in the ordinary, using it to kick start the process of making stuff, and finding ways to carve out the creative time and space that allows you to work your ass off on the projects that matter most to you. Like knitting a sweater. Or saving the world.

  • Lovely story telling

    Brenda has a wonderful talent for storytelling. She is very eloquent with her words, you can envision exactly what she is describing. She has a voice made for “radio”. I love listening every time a new episode comes out!

  • Whine, complain and make yourself a victim…

    Oh my gosh! I can’t stand when people constantly complain and talk about how “life’s not fair”. No kidding, it’s not fair and life is not designed to be easy for you or anyone! But, it can be good and it can be joyful and it is what you make of it for yourself and others. Knitting should be inclusive as we should be. But to expound on how unfair things are makes it sound as though you are a victim of life and circumstances. So.. if anyone out there is interested in a knitting podcast that... more
