Just want to be clear about this.
Will we be writing about our experiences, success or failures with knitting or knitting projects? Will this be the main theme?
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)

Thank you
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.

Here is Mine,like every one else I haven't had a penpal since 5th grade. So I am going to really like to have one. By the way they now have a forever stamps. You buy them and if the stamps go up you still use the ones you bought. So here goes.
