If you knit and you own an iPod, this week's guest needs no introduction. Pour yourself some tea and grab your knitting because you’re about to hear from Brenda Dayne, producer of "Cast-On, a podcast for knitters."

Bren at Amroth
For those who have yet to get hooked on her show, here's little background info. Brenda is a 46-year-old American writer and knitter living in west Wales. She’s witty, funny and can work a mic like a professional broadcaster -- a trait that has won her the admiration of many of her crafty podcasting peers. Her knitting podcast is wildly popular, with thousands of knitters around the globe tuning in each week.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Brenda recently about a variety of topics including knitting, podcasting, creative living and her decision to pack up her life and follow her heart to Wales. She's currently on a podcasting break and gearing up for the next season of "Cast-On" which begins July 7. Tune in for a chat with Brenda to get you though the break.

Pasted GraphicThis week's project is a sock pattern from Brenda inspired by the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Next Week's Show: I’ll be posting an interview with Gayla Trail, creator of the fantastic You Grow Girl website. And I’m running a contest because the folks at Simon and Schuster donated a copy of Gayla’s awesome book, “You Grow Girl: The Groundbreaking Guide to Gardening” that I will be giving to the listener who submits the coolest eco-friendly craft idea by Saturday, June 24. The winner will be announced when I post the interview with Gayla. My hope is to be able to post some fantastic project ideas on the website when I release the green CraftSanity episodes in the coming weeks.
