Thank you so much for this kind email ... I don't recall exactly when I first signed up for your mailing list, but I know it was because I loved seeing your bright smile. Of course, the patterns, tutorials and contests are a draw as well. I love your upbeat writing and, although my knitting habit has abated somewhat over the years, yours is the one newsletter that I never fail to open and enjoy. Thank you so much for all that you do,

Cynthia B asks …

Are there any "strings" attached to the e-newsletter?
My answer: In the e-newsletter, I am more likely to talk about yarn and thread (rather than string, lol). Sorry, couldn't help myself. But seriously, no, there is no obligation to buy or pay anything, and you can unsubscribe at anytime.
