Getting Ready for Project Spectrum
My goal for Project Spectrum is to challenge myself to be creative in new ways -- not just knitting. To that end, I've been looking around for inspiration and have found some great podcasts on crafts in general. There's a link to CraftySanity in the sidebar. I have listened to two of Jennifer's episodes and they are great. Like KnitCast, each episode features an interview with a creative person. The ones that I listened to were interviews with Jeffrey Yamaguchi, the author of 52 Projects: Random Acts of Everyday Creativity, and Lady Linoleum of the blog Monster Crochet. Her latest interview is with Deirdre Flint, she of the fantastic songs "Boob Fairy" and "Presidential Succession," which have been featured on Cast On. I cannot wait to hear that one!
Craftypod is another fabulous podcast, by Sister DG. I've only listened to one of these episodes -- it was an interview with Kathy Cano Murillo of Crafty Chica and author of Art de la Soul: Glittery Ideas to Liven Up Your Life. Their discussion was primarily about Dia de los Muertos, so I listened to this about four months too late (or eight months too early!), but I still got a lot out of it.
Whip up is a blog dedicated to all types of crafting, and is also very inspiring. I was psyched to see Cover Your Head! mentioned in a recent post about knitalongs.
So, other than the knitblogs, what inspires you in your crafty endeavors?
