After a day of increasing frustration at work and home, I need an evening of conviviality at Knit Nite. To simply cut loose with people that are friendly and supportive, to share yarn stories, to discuss the week. I have come to rely on these Friday night sessions as my only real social outlet. I know from nearly 25 years of participation in online communities that they have both real appeal and real limitations. Long calls with friends IRL are not an option for me. Tonight's gathering was less than two hours and not sufficient to hit my reset button.
