Why do I want to meet everyone?

Through this pod cast I reach hundreds of people. I find myself now wanting to meet my listeners but, I don’t know why.

I don’t do the show because I am super egotistical. If I did the show would sound a lot more like Howard Stern and less like Ira Glass (I heart Ira). I am not looking to meet people to discuss me and my silly show. Nor am I looking for validation, although a nice atta boy / pat on the back from my listeners does give me re-newed energy to do the show.

I want to meet people because I am interested in what other people are up to and what they are like. But I fear that in meeting them we will find ourselves with nothing to talk about.

I think this is another one of those moments where I realize why it is I love knitting groups so much. I don’t need to strike up the conversation, but I can listen and chime in when I feel like it.

Anyhow,  for those who are interested in hanging out and gabbing about projects… I am going to the NH Fiber Fest this weekend. I will be traveling with my mom and knitting buddy. I will probably be wearing a tan hat that has the LL Bean fly fishing logo on it. I invite people to say hi. I will be looking to record other people talking about what they are doing at the show, so if you want to contribute, please let me know.

You will know it is me if I look the my picture on the Yarn Harlot web page and am carrying around those silly cards I posted about yesterday in my knitting bag.

Also, is anyone in the NYC area?? I am going to be down there on business June 7-10. I am looking for a group somewhere in Manhattan to go to for me and my Auntie. If you have ideas, please let me know.

  1. I feel the same way about my show listeners, so I completely understand. I also feel that way about the people that create the shows I listen to (like yours!) so I would totally go for a meet-up.

    Plus there is the whole Regina’s Pizza thing…
