Take the Biden 100 Day Mask Challenge

Biden has challenged US to wear masks for the first 100 days of his presidency. If you have been wanting a national pandemic plan, it would seem as if one is well on its way, beginning with this challenge. Before he even took office Biden was challenging Americans to take the 100 day Mask Challenge. How has your state dealt with the pandemic? How do you think a national plan may or may not help? Have you knitted or crocheted your own mask? Do you still wear woven masks?

Staying Connected Virtually and Zoom Etiquette

The COVID 19 Pandemic has pivoted all the rules. As people look for ways to forge ahead and to stay connected virtually, Zoom and other online meeting platforms have become increasing popular. Consequently, more people have been meeting online. However, house dresses are becoming increasingly popular. As we began to think about holding our knitting and crochet group meetings online this trend gave us pause. Many people have gotten into staging their homes. So, for the professional meetings that we have been apart of the house dress is not that popular. One must remember what the meeting is for, that they are in a public space, and that one must still dress for the occasion. When bringing someone into your home in a virtual, public and often recorded manner, one should think carefully and remember just because one is at home does not change the nature of the meeting. A professional meeting is just that: professional. Virtual space is public space. So, we decided to share a couple of tips that will help us all pivot appropriately into our new virtual spaces. As some have appropriately noted, somethings will become the new normal. This just might be one of them. Take our survey for holding a Virtual Group Meeting for the Noble Knits and Crochets Group.

COVID 19 & UFOs

knitting and crocheting

Staying connected during COVID 19 has been very important to many including me. As we began the reopening phase, staying connected has still remained important. Many things have shifted as people try to get back to normal or at least a new normal. In the heat of COVID 19 when most of us were encouraged to remain at home, many people shared with me that now was a great time to work on UFOs (unfinished objects). With all the time we had on our hands at home, this was a great idea. 

With many restrictions still remaining and with everyone still getting back to normal, many of us find that we still are at home for various reasons although many things have begun to reopen at some stage of capacity. We, for the most part, have been effective in slowing the spread. Although some states are still struggling to keep things moving in the right direction. And a vaccine for COVID 19 still has not been achieved. There is still much to resolve when it comes to COVID 19 although much of the scare has been resolved. Some questions still remain in the air. 

Many people are still opting to meet virtually and forego large meetings and meeting in person. Maybe this has become a comfortable part of our new norm, as many have found ways to work from home. Needless to stay we still have a lot of time on our hands to finish some UFOs and find new ways to be very productive and creative at home. Either way staying connected is important. We would love to hear about what you are working on and what UFOs you are completing. Post a picture or e-mail us an image (nobleknitsandcrochets@shidonnaravenfd.com).
