Brenda Dayne is a knitter and a storyteller who knows the power of stitch memory. She is the host of the wildly popular knitting podcast, Cast On and has been telling stories through her knitting for years.
I first fell in love with her podcast in the summer of 2006. It was my last free summer before leaving for the Jersey Boys tour. I used to be a Stage Manager, but my real passion was knitting. Listening to Brenda talking about following her passion was a big part of my quitting my 22 year career in theatre to pursue knitting full time, and two years later, joining Lion Brand to open the Lion Brand Yarn Studio (our retail store & education center in New York City).
Now I’m sooo excited that Brenda is launching her North American tour at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio on May 3rd. Brenda will be collecting yarncrafter’s memories as part of her art piece called “A Memorable Yarn.” The finished piece will exhibit at the Wool Museum in Wales through the summer of 2012. This is where you all come in.
