Why do we craft?

I’ve finally re-learned how to knit, and I’m about to finish my first basic project…and while looking around for some knitting websites I found 2 amazing podcasts on craft:

1) The first podcast is “Reconsidering Craft“, from the program”To the best of our knowledge”, on Wisconsin Public Radio, and features crafters from the indie underground craft revival in the US, as well as a sociologist, a neuroscientist (she talks about the healing power of knitting), a writer who published a book on scrapbooks in the States from 1970 to 1945…

2) And this is Cast On, a very inspiring podcast and website “dedicated to the paradigm shifting notion that knitting matters” . Anything on this website is knit-related, and in the most interesting way.
