AFK

Ever seem to feel overwhelmed with keeping up with all the ” cyberosity” of knitting that has filled the web? Not that it’s a bad thing in any way at all, but being connected to so many yarn companies e-mails, internet sites, blogs, podcasts, Ravelry, FB & Twitter to seemingly keep up with all that’s constantly new in the knitting world, has well kind of got me on overload.

Now, I never in a million years thought this would happen to me, but being sucked into this technology driven vortex has left me with a bit of an odd  feeling. I am in the process of trying to learn more by participating in a Social Media Boot Camp offered thru Artfire.com.

Often when the fast paced demands of life have forced me to put down my knitting, I invariably wind up wondering why I feel not like myself.

Now this feeling has extended to time spent on Google Reader, reading emails, FB, etc… It is definitely turning into my hands on some sort of keyboard instead of my hands on my crafts. So with only two hands & limited amounts of free time, my dilemma is deepening.

In an effort to chisel out time for myself & for my crafts, knitting, crocheting, spinning, I have tried to cut things out of my life that I do not find as rewarding.

So I am consciously making an effort to walk away from the “connectivity”, so I can reconnect with what brings me joy.

I would be interested in hearing how others feel about this & how they deal with dividing free time between their actual crafting & time spent connecting in this faster paced digital world.
