OK, seems as though there is some interest in this. So I'm starting it. Here are "da rules":

1. Fill out the form below or respond by PM to a form you see that interests you. Do not put any personal information such as your e-mail addy or address in the form! This is an open forum. If you are unsure of someone who responds to you, check their longevity here and post count, search their names and see if you can find out something about them. You may want to PM them for a while if you are unsure. The allergy concern is for people who have severe allergies who might be effected by smoke or animal dander.

2. Agree to send at least one letter by regular postal mail once a month.

3. Do not sell your penpal anything. Don't offer them a part of your business. Do not put them in a chain letter. Do not offer to make parts of their bodies enhanced. Don't send marriage proposals (well at least initially ;) ) IOW no spam or junk mail. This is to make friends, not gain customers or love interests.

4. If you no longer want a pen pal (or have enough pen pals) edit your message here or put up a notice that says, "No More Pen Pals" or something to that effect at the TOP of your message.

5. Be nice. Don't expect the world. And remember how to buy stamps (they are 41 now domestic US letters - just in case you haven't mailed a letter recently!)

6. Don't feel offended if someone turns you down. They may have more on their plate or have enough pen pals.

That's it. Here's the form:

I'm interested but have a maybe dumb question. I have been typing for going on 15 years now, and do almost 70 wpm. Because of this I think I have forgotten how to "write" and certainly have the worst pennmenship?ack of the entire world. Can I type a letter??? I know it's a bit impersonal, but gosh, wouldn't you like to be able to read the words????:roflhard:

Thank you

I don't see any reason why you can't type a letter. It's still more personal than e-mail. I mean you get something out of the mail box that isn't furniture advertisement or bills (if you still opt for paper bills)

It will be anything you and your pal want to write about. Could be knitting. Could be your adventures of the week/month. Could be life and how it's treating you. I'm leaving this up to each individual Pen Pal. Make it what you want. The only thing I'm requesting is that everyone write at least once a month.

Now, what happens if Im not in an age group? Can I still join? Cuz I cant really say Im in my 10's. It seems to convey a misleading image to me. See, I happen to be 15, nearly 16. Am I too young for the pen pals?

Drummberboi, you are MORE than welcome to join. If you will notice I've now changed the line on age so that it appears as examples. You'll also notice that I left out the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's. If you like you can just say "Teen" or "Juvenile Knitlinquent" I'm sure some there is someone out there that would like to be pen pals with you! Thank you for asking. I don't want to exclude anyone!

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!

Would anyone consider a partial sighted penfriend who loves to knit, can only do fairly basic knitting and can not pick up the necks or sew the items together who would love someone to assist with this as all I knit is for charity. In return I would assist them in whatever way I could, would be an honest, open and trustworthy friend. Am an Ordained Overseas Missionary Priest and I Promise! not to preach at anyone lol
I do not mind which country, would like people about the same age or older (over 40 yrs) would be happy to send knitting back and forth and be happy to send anything that they were looking for.
Love to chat about anything, love to laugh. Love animals and all the latest pop music, adore Xfactor and Britains Got Talent lol
Warm wishes to all on here and thank you to the Administrators for creating such a great site x:happydance:

I'm interested but have a maybe dumb question. I have been typing for going on 15 years now, and do almost 70 wpm. Because of this I think I have forgotten how to "write" and certainly have the worst pennmenship?ack of the entire world. Can I type a letter??? I know it's a bit impersonal, but gosh, wouldn't you like to be able to read the words????:roflhard:

I have to type my letters due to a problem with my hand, so I'd love to be your penpal. Would that be okay with you?

OK, seems as though there is some interest in this. So I'm starting it. Here are "da rules":

1. Fill out the form below or respond by PM to a form you see that interests you. Do not put any personal information such as your e-mail addy or address in the form! This is an open forum. If you are unsure of someone who responds to you, check their longevity here and post count, search their names and see if you can find out something about them. You may want to PM them for a while if you are unsure. The allergy concern is for people who have severe allergies who might be effected by smoke or animal dander.

2. Agree to send at least one letter by regular postal mail once a month.

3. Do not sell your penpal anything. Don't offer them a part of your business. Do not put them in a chain letter. Do not offer to make parts of their bodies enhanced. Don't send marriage proposals (well at least initially ;) ) IOW no spam or junk mail. This is to make friends, not gain customers or love interests.

4. If you no longer want a pen pal (or have enough pen pals) edit your message here or put up a notice that says, "No More Pen Pals" or something to that effect at the TOP of your message.

5. Be nice. Don't expect the world. And remember how to buy stamps (they are 41 now domestic US letters - just in case you haven't mailed a letter recently!)

6. Don't feel offended if someone turns you down. They may have more on their plate or have enough pen pals.

That's it. Here's the form:

So I know I just subscribed to this forum, but to be fair I just found out about it because I was searching for "knitting pen pals" on Google. :) I used to have a lot of snail mail pen pals when I was in my teenage years, and have since lost touch with them, and trying to find new ones is hard because there are so many weirdos out there and I just really wanted some new women friends that like DIY and crafts, and enjoyed knitting, and to be able to talk with each other and maybe meet some new cool people. :) Sooo... without further ado...

Some additional information about me that isn't covered below -

I have a degree in Interior Design, I am finishing up another degree in Art, and am working on my Real Estate license. I love design, art, photography, cooking, animals, knitting, & DIY projects. My favorite color is red and my most recent completed knitting project was a sweater for our dog Maya, which was too big so she wears it with a hairclip to keep it on. haha I'm working on my first pair of socks currently. :-X

KH Name: Lauren (laurcunningham)

Country: United States

Are you willing to send internationally?: Totally!

Your age range: (such as: 20's, 30's, 90's): I was born on March 19, 1983, so I'm 30. :)

Do you care what age range your pen pal is? I'm 30 and I would like to find new people around my age to chitchat with. Soo... 25-99... that's a good range.

Years knitting: I started in 2009, so about 4 years now.

Gender: I am a lady.

Do you care what gender your pen pal is? Yes and no. I love my boyfriend very much and really would rather speak with women, but I know there are the occasional male knitters out there and I'd hate to exclude them, so if you're a guy and you're honestly ONLY looking for a new knitting friend, then okay, but mostly I'm looking for women only.

Children?: We don't have any kiddos yet.

Pets?: Two dogs (14 year old Maya, a chocolate lab; and 4 1/2 year old Molly, a Corgi/Heeler mix), two cats (10 1/2 year old Stewie, a Snowshoe; and 5 year old Willa, a domestic shorthair), and 20 fish.

Allergy concerns: I don't think so, or at least known that I have run into so far.
