I have reached that point of 2020, as great as I get along as an introvert, I needed PEOPLE. And I needed MY people. A few of the knitting podcasts I listen to have been referencing Zoom knit nights that are open to anyone and I finally bit the bullet and showed up to one.
I was nervous because I didn’t know anyone on the call. But I grabbed my Radiate and a glass of wine and showed up anyway. And like most all in the knitting community they were kind and welcoming and it was an amazing night. I mostly just enjoyed seeing other people’s project and listening to the banter. I didn’t feel like I was intruding and they seemed genuinely happy to have new people in the group.
Bonus, I also made good progress on my second Radiate sleeve. I might have a finished thing soon!
I have been wanting to try this too, but being an introvert as well makes me reluctant. I am going to channel my inner YOU when I get cold feet.
Sounds like a fun night!
There’s a Blogville group that does weekly Skype chats too. I haven’t joined in a while but you might check out Alissa’s blog, headknits. I think she’s the one who sets it up these days!
I go to the Blogville Skype one. It is Sunday’s at 6pm UK time and I think that’s 10am Alaska time. It is open to more people but has mostly been Alissa from Head Knits, Sarah from Mildly Granola, Marilee from Quite a Yarn and me. There’s a Ravelry group with more details and the official US time it’s on. You’d be very welcome.
I never thought of a zoom knitting call
I have been considering doing this. I miss that kind of interaction!
That sounds so lovely, will you go back? I really must join in my zoom knitting group again.
Oh yes, for as long as they hold them I think I will!
That sounds amazing. I’ve never been to a knitting group meeting
