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:

KH Name: Barbara Garcia
Country:USA
Are you willing to send internationally?:Yes
Your age range: (such as: 20's, 30's, 90's):60's
Do you care what age range your pen pal is?No

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.
