Guest: Brenda Dayne of the Cast On podcast chats with Kathy when she visited the store at the beginning of May. They chat about her 7-week trip around the United States, her podcast, stashes, yarn-buying, and more!

Brenda also chats about her current project – socks, and when she began knitting. She started knitting in the early 1990s when a friend taught her.

This weekend, Brenda will be at The Yarnery in St. Paul, MN.  Following this weekend, there are still a few more places that you can find her. Check out the tour page on her site to see if she’ll be near you. Her “A Memorable Yarn” presentation is fantastic.

    Since I’m always trying to improve my sock making skills, I’m interested in the Sherman toe and heel method that I heard about on this podcast.  However, I don’t live anywhere near any of these classes, in fact, I’m a North American, currently living in South America.  Is this technique available in a form that I can purchase and try out on my own, either in a book, a pamphlet, or an online source?  Thank you!
