Knitting Pen Pals


#41

Yes Virginia, there REALLY is a Santa Claus. How do I know, you ask? Because Knitting help, has a penpal list and all I want for christmas is… a penpal. If I close my eyes and click the heels of my ruby red slippers, I won’t be shot off to kansas but find a letter from someone from somewhere in my mailbox, lol
(and more power to you if your willing to put up with my off beat sense of humor)

#56

I’m looking for a pen pal if any one wants one. Also the rules are on the fisrt page in the first post Just a reminder to anyone who may have questions.


#57

Hey everyone, sorry I’ve been absent for a bit. Someone asked about what to do after you have a pen pal. You can do one of two things. 1) You can edit your post so that your information is gone or 2) you can just edit it to say that you are “full” You can have as many penpals as you think you can handle. Just remember to show each penpal the same respect and write at least once a month to each.

I’m glad you are all having fun with this and are finding pals to write to!
