Summary: 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 a*s off on the projects that matter most to you. Like knitting a sweater. Or saving the world.
Lively yarn is tamed, and Abatoirre is no longer offal through the magic of indigo; knitting that is no fun, but still worth it; and we bid a fond farewell to old friends, with audio from the Cast On archives.
