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.

Preach to me that wooly goodness

Listening to Brenda is like going to church. She makes me feel warm and happy as I laugh and cry along with someone who feels like a dear friend.

I came to this podcast right at the close, and fell so heavily in love that I have been giving myself permission to listen to episodes only when I need them most!

Thanks for all your time and effort, Brenda! Your time on the air was utterly magical, as are you.

Super enjoyable podcast!!

Took me a long time to discover the podcast but glad I did, it is great to listen to while knitting, just like hanging out with a good knitting friend. And she is funny to boot. No longer in production, and has been around for over 10 years but fairly timeless.
