Because I’m pretty good at figuring out my average knitting dilemmas I didn’t really participate in a lot of different knitting forums and communities. And because I don’t know every little knittin’ thing I felt sort of helpless when it came to answering questions, especially because there are so many expert knitters that are far more articulate than I am.
Then comes along machine knitting which has sucked me right into the beating heart of Ravelry by dangling the largest most knowledgeable group of living machine knitters ever in front of me and forcing me to interact with them.
So that’s where I’ve been, figuring out how to post, upload photos and tag my projects, and realizing that pretty much everyone knows their way around the site better than I do. I know enough to know I don’t know a lot. When I’m not doing that I’m fiddling with my machines and trying to figure out what I don’t know I don’t know about using them. Try as I might to keep up with everything like blogging and vacuuming things that aren’t yarn related (like floors and window blinds) sometimes some things fall by the way side until I can get myself into a routine of some sort.
I’m just not there yet. I’m going through therapy and getting treatment for my ADHD and it does help, but it also brings to the fore that I am playing catch-up in a LOT of different areas now that my brain sort of functions.
