I agree, Sue, I'm glad they're there...for other people. Pinterest and stuff is a mystery to me, I don't want anything I do connected directly to FB or anything google (I'm always signing out of google search, youtube, google voice) but that's my preference. I hesitate to ask about things because I'm concerned they'll be taken as complaints when they're not. I'm still getting used to how things are here and you can ask about something and that's OK, nobody seems to be offended or taking it the wrong way. That's why I love this site, people can (within reason) do what they want and learn and share and just have a good time.
Whenever I go to Knit Picks to order, I always go through the ad here. The ads that really annoy me are on yahoo and interfere with my email.
I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
