Cast On

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.

  • One of the first podcasts I ever listened to!

    So glad to re-discover this fine person is still podcasting! Like encountering a long lost friend. I initially was drawn in by her overseas life discoveries which I could relate to to some degree, and found her to be just the right voice in my ear. I still smile at the sheep bleating in the intro music. Keep on with your wonderfulness, Ms. Dayne. You are loved.

  • Entertaining and Informative

    Yup, it’s all here. Brenda shares information and knowledge about making, designing, and knitting. And she’s entertaining because she is clever, smart, curious, and has an interesting sense of humor. And snark when appropriate.

  • Once in a blue moon

    Don’t bother subscribing to this. It’s once every three or four months. Obviously she is not interested in podcasting.
