I am also an adult, my friend, and I never meant to humiliate you.
I knit for charity all the time, including the Oddball projects that involve over 100 of the KH forum members. We all knit the items, and pay our own postage. None of us has been or ever will be compensated for that. We give from our hearts, without expecting anything in return.
I was just surprised to see you asking specifically for a Debbie Bliss book in return for your shawl. I believe that book is worth over 20 dollars. And wouldn't they have to pay postage to mail it to you?
I just didn't understand your reasoning with that request. As I said with my first post in that thread, if you're looking for a trade, you should go to the "Buy/Sell/Swap" thread.
