Podcast Episode 326: Staying Creative – New Crafts & Old Favorites

Today, we’re taking a short break from all things knitting and sharing some of the OTHER crafts we’ve been experimenting with lately. At Knit Picks, we are knitters too and we also do other things.

First up, Hillary and Hannah talk about what it’s like to learn a new craft from scratch. Hillary has been exploring the wide world of ceramics at home and Hannah has been dipping a tentative toe into punch needle! Everyone’s process of learning something new is different. They give some examples of things that have been helpful in their new craft explorations. 

Next, Stacey and Lee describe their recent forays into sewing. Both of them have been sewing for years but recently it’s grown into a full time interest. The common theme for both Stacey and Lee was discovering the perfect, challenging project that meant they reached a new experience level. These themes and milestones apply to knitting and many crafts. Also, stay tuned for some great audiobook and podcast recommendations to keep you entertained while you craft! 

As always… happy crafting!
