Of Podcasts and Knitters
While prowling through Ravelry I see, on occasion, people asking about what (if any) podcasts they listen to. Now these questions are not directed at me, but I though it might be nice to share the main two I know of.
Cast On- For those of you not in the “know” this is a delightful podcast produced by the always awesome Brenda Dayne. She is a US transplant living in Wales and her show runs the gamut from interviews with textile mills, to Today’s Sweater. Unfortunately there has not been any new episodes in a while, but her archives are chock full of a wonderful variety of episodes and pretty good music as well. Her shows tend to clock in right around the hour mark and as such provide great entertainment for driving or knitting. The show is incredibly well done and while I have run through the archives a few times now, there is always something more I learn on the next go around.
Stitch Addiction- This is a relative newcomer to the land of video casting, but she has been producing shows at a steady pace. The caster lives in the Midwest and she discusses a variety of topics, from personal favorites for the week to showing off her latest cross stitching projects. The episodes are a usually around the 1/2 mark and make for some excellent visual entertainment. Her cats are adorable and her knits are just fabulous (her son’s Christmas present was one of the cutest things I have seen in a long time.) Seriously go check her out!
Obviously I know there are a great many more podcasts out there, but finding them can be a bit tricky. So do us a favor, if there are any podcasts you just love and feel need to be heard, let me know in the comments. I am always on the look out for more.
