for the larger part, my experiences with the chatbox has been very helpful...especially Mmario! the guy knows so much stuff! anyways, it's kinda sad that a few fellows mistake someone simply being nice with "romantic intentions" when i get time, i'm taking that crack about "i knit to sublimate romantic frustration" out of my profile. i thought i was only being humourous but too many seem to think it is some kind of an invitation. i'd like to think most folks are here for the knitting and the camraderie.
