I am delighted by the online community of knitters I am getting to know. Be it a simple wish to get well and find new employment, compliments about a completed sweater, or a virtual high-five from an indie yarn dyer after scoring some of her yarn, it is a community of people with whom I have something in common. Lacking physical, real-time, face-to-face contacts now I am in danger of retreating into this cocoon, but I am trying to get out more, meeting former colleagues for lunch and in-person knitting groups. Itís not about career networking, its about staying sane.
