Shandeh, looks like we are off to a great start! Thanks for getting us going!
I wanted to let you know since you need the info, that my house is non-smoking and I do have a cat, although all yarn is stored in a closet where he can't access it. Hopefully that keeps it relatively dander-free! I do not have any allergies.
Can't wait to find out my place in line!
I'm JamOKnit on Ravelry.
