Episode 218 - Knitting to keep it together during SIP

Coming to you with another episode recorded each from our own homes. :( Recording separately is definitely not as much fun, and comes with its own challenges. Especially when my old computer decided to give up the ghost this week. Sigh. Computer troubles aside, I know all of us collectively are having a hard time right now. The future is unknown and sheltering in place is hard. Be strong, knit on, support each other, stay safe and wash your hands! Remember, we are keeping our loved ones safe.

We discuss a little bit about sheltering in place and a reminder to keep it real! Not everyone and every family is dealing with stresses the same way, and many of us are dealing with loss of income and jobs; essential jobs that take us in harms way; dealing with trying to work at home while homeschooling; sick family members or self; lack of focus or direction; and overall grief and fear of an unknown future.
