MINDFUL MAKING #36 – 2022 Holiday Cast On

Welcome to 2022. The first mindful making video podcast of the year. In this episode we talk about the Summer Breeze Tee, gift knitting and Christmas day Cast ons. There is also a peak into the plans for this promising new year. Grab a cuppa and settle in.

Knitting is my mindfulness practice. That is where I set down to breathe to relax and to focus. Knitting nourishes our built-in desire to create and beyond all the mental and health benefits of knitting we even get beautiful wearable garments.
