While we are all asked to self isolate I thought we could continue our Video Yarn Socials.
Here is a link below our friend Heather has figured out for us and some tips on how to join us Wednesday Nights 6:00-8:00pm or meet with other friends during the day.
Or you can download the Jitsi Meet app for your phone or tablet and type in A Tangle of Yarn when prompted to “Enter a room name”.
This link is perpetual, meaning it acts as a virtual knitting circle where anyone with the link can come and go as they please. There will be some scheduled meet ups similar to those held in the store during non-pandemic times, but otherwise you can just tell some friends to meet you on Jitsi the same way you would if you were going to have them meet you at the store. (Just remember, just like the store, anyone not in your group can also pop in at any time.)
Tips for best use.
1. Chrome is the best/only browser that Jitsi works well on (if you’re not using the app).
2. Turn on video, but mute your mic as soon as possible if you aren’t using headphones with a mic feature.
3. If you want your name to appear, click on the little speech bubble/chat icon and it will prompt you to enter a name/username. That name should stay for multiple uses of the website/app.
