Episode 85: Sixty Six Coupons

by Brenda Dayne on August 6, 2009

Sarah Moise Young discovers that doing her part is as easy as picking up her needles; Jasmin Canty escapes death by stash; I attempt to Make Do and Mend on 66 wartime rationing coupons.

Look, Mom! I’m on the 4th plinth!


Or rather, I will be on Saturday, September 19th, from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Check out some of my favorite plinth-sitters thus far: Bob the Pot, who shared his clay and incorporated all the little figures into this sculpture; Mr Swing Patrol, The Atheist Thriller guy. Details about the full project here.

This week’s Audible recommendation is Mrs Pettigrew Lives for a Day, by Winifred Watson.


Special thanks to writers Sarah Moise Young, and Jasmin Canty, and to readers Sage Tyrtle and Tim Ralphs.

I was thrilled to read the plinth appeared in the news here. And there are photos too!

The Knitting Forecast! (Okay the rest of the episode was terrific as well.) But the Knitting Forecast! I was listening in the car on my way to work and actually had to pull over, I was laughing so hard. Then I rewound and played it again and chuckled all the rest of the drive to work. And played it again on my walk from the parking lot to my office, laughing all the way in.

Especially the terminal “Stalled” on several projects.

“Pooling: fair to moderate”. Bwaha-ha-ha-ha!

(Aside: And with that episode, I’ve listened to every episode of Cast On from first to last, in sequence. I’ve caught up just in time (hopefully) to start listening to the new season in real time.)

I cannot wait for the next podcast! I tremble with anticipation for which a putting on a sweater is not a good remedy.
I love you, Brenda! Hurry!

Brenda, you are my knitting touch stone! I only found you a little over a month ago and have lessened to all your podcasts! You are my inspiration! Can’t wait for the next seres, till then I’ll be living off Cast On re-runs!

I’m finally catching back up to you. Loved, Loved, LOVED the Knitting Forecast. Delightful! I laughed out loud at the end! Here’s my vote to include it in each podcast.

Wonderful to catch up with you.

Is there a transcript for this program? I’m doing a report on the impact of WWII and the Great Depression on fashion and the last section of this podcast would be really good for citing in my essay.
