MANY, MANY THANKS FOR ALL YOUR ENTHUSIASTIC AND ENCOURAGING REPLIES.
I DID INTEND THE OFFER TO BE A GUINEA PIG TO BE OPEN UNTIL MONDAY BUT 24 HOURS LATER, I'M OVERWHELMED.
I did initially want just six guinea pigs but I've been so blown away by your kind response that it's hard to choose - so I won't. I've decided that everyone who took time to contact me will receive a set of knitting hooks. (names below - in no particular order)
MULENE, TIGERELSKER, ANNE (Mitchem), DUSTINAC, JEEP GIRL, MINTDEE, LAURA (Ontario), HOLLY P, KEMP, AMBER CA, DEEKNIT, SIMPLYKAAR, MISSTIALOUISE, DOULALYNDSEY, KNIT ADDICT, ANNE (Sebago, MN) and finally, CURLYCAT.
Would you ALL PLEASE E-MAIL ME WITH YOUR ADDRESSES (Except for Kemp and DeeKnit)
SECURITY: All your addresses will be written down as soon as I receive them and then WILL BE IMMEDIATELY AND TOTALLY WIPED from my computer.
THEY WILL NOT BE PASSED ON TO ANYONE ELSE.
Again, MANY THANKS FOR YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT AND KIND HELP.
