Approximately seven years later, and Brenda Dayne and Cast On are still going strong. We were very lucky to meet Brenda last autumn at the Plug-and-Play Pembrokeshire retreat, and the signature line in her emails is pretty much right on target: she is warm, polite, intelligent and funny. We are thrilled to announce that Brenda is joining us this year for the inaugural Yarn in the City: The Great London Yarn Crawl. She will be crawling along with you on one of the routes, and has graciously agreed to grace us all with her soothing voice as the emcee of our after party.
Ravelry page for the book.
In addition to a copy of her book, Brenda is also donating yarn for Now in a Minute, her fabulous shawl designed for gradient-dyed yarns, first published in the Spring+Summer 2013 issue of Knitty.
Unique Sheep Pashmi Gradiance yarn (80% superwash merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon) in the colorway "Serengeti". It will be a fabulous shawl, and I'm sorely tempted to lose it (into my stash) on the way to the pub in September.
Finally, Brenda will be coming to London with a massive pile of books that she is donating for door prizes:
We are so pleased that Brenda is able to join us, and we are very grateful for her generosity and support. It's going to be a great day in September!
