True scum. And people wonder why I refuse to use credit cards or even have bank accounts. Hopefully the cops will track them down and put them where they belong.

I'd recommend starting off with some size 10 needles and some inexpensive worsted weight yarn just to learn the basics.

You're welcome.

Yes, if someone is bidding on a load they are usually looking to pick something up and get rolling. Can't make any money sitting around.

The batteries go bad fairly quickly and the atomizers can fail suddenly for no reason. Add to that the cost and they're...

Thanks. Sorry about your father. He must have been one of those rare pipe smokers who inhale. Most of us don't.
