I know Edinburgh Yarn Fest was last month and I didn’t get to go but lately, I have been obsessed with watching footage of people’s experience on YouTube. It looks amazing, this year Fiber Festivals are not really in the cards( oddly enough it is a coincidence that I will be able to pop in at the Dallas Fort Worth Fiber Festival which crazily enough coincides with my daughter’s spring break and a visit to my in-laws). I don’t get out much, at least beyond my comfort zone. It could be because I am raising a kid, or getting sucked into a new crossword puzzle or watching more things on YouTube.
I know as knitters, crocheters, and spinners most of us are introverts; we sit at home, connect with Ravelry, or meet with local knitting groups. I rememeber a few years ago I was better at getting online and connect through forums on Ravelry, it was something I really enjoyed doing.
I don’t know what has happened if I have already found my “tribe” and just connect with them when we are able to connect or if I just have gotten busy but one thing I have noticed that that amount of time that I have spent “peopling” in pretty limited.
The stress level these last 12 months has been high and I don’t deny that I have been pouring myself into solitary activities…. so maybe next year I will make it a goal to “people” just a little bit more.
